Why You Should Help Elect Sierra Club Endorsed Candidates

The goal of the Sierra Club endorsement process is to preserve the environment through nonpartisan grassroots political action. We seek to elect candidates who will support and promote environmental protection. Sierra Club endorsed candidates are proven leaders for the environment who will help the Sierra Club further its objectives to:

  • Raise public awareness about environmental issues and elevate the priority of these issues for decision-makers
  • Encourage Club members and other environmentalists to participate in the political process
  • Advance the Club's conservation agenda by building relationships with legislators and other elected officials; and
  • Strengthen the Sierra Club's capacity to elect pro-environment candidates at every level of government.
