Coming Clean - It's Time to Take a Stand

The Blog of Executive Director Michael BruneDespite Trump's specious bluster about "easily" winning an election in which his opponent got almost 3 million more votes than he did, he will enter office with the most feeble public support of any incoming modern president. According to a new Quinnipiac poll, his job approval rating has sunk to just 37 percent among voters (unsurprisingly, that's even lower among women voters), while only 30 percent of voters approve of his cabinet nominations overall (his nomination of former Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson is supported by just 23 percent of voters). I'm going to go out on a limb and predict these numbers won't be improving anytime soon. >" alias="Read more>>" conversion="false">Read more>>

Marching for Women's and Human Rights Hundreds of Chapter members and supporters joined with tens of thousands to march for women's rights, our safety, our health, our families and our communities. The march was held the day after the inauguration of Donald Trump and signaled to the Trump administration that we are gravely concerned about the impacts of climate change and the implications of an Administration that promotes climate skepticism, advancement of fossil fuels, an extractive economy, racism, bigotry and sexist oppression. >" alias="See more photos >>" conversion="false" style="font-weight: bold;">See more local photos >> >" alias="See worldwide photos here>>" conversion="false">See worldwide photos here>>

San Diegans Resist Trump's Message

Working with the Sierra Club My Generation Campaign , more than 250 Chapter members and supporters gathered last week in San Diego and Encinitas for Sierra Club Resist Trump events. Members and supporters rallied to oppose the Trump administration's agenda of increased fossil fuel usage and to promote 100% clean energy in the San Diego region through Community Choice Energy. The event provided the public with the opportunity to voice concerns and get involved in local efforts.
