Take Action with the Sierra Club Keep up the pressure on Trump and Congress.

Our climate, lands, and water need your protection. Become a monthly donor -- a generous donor will chip in $100 for every signup. PLUS, we'll send you our eco-chic reusable bags -- FREE. GIVE MONTHLY


July is Monthly Donor Month here at the Sierra Club, and I wanted to make sure you knew about a special, one-time match that will make your gift go $100 further in our fight against climate change, Big Oil, and the Trump administration.

Longtime supporter Michael Bloomberg has pledged $100 for every monthly gift made before midnight tomorrow. Don't miss this opportunity to maximize your donation -- rush your gift NOW so that we can finish July with the resources to scale up our efforts to protect the planet we love.

Deanne, there's no question these first six months of the Trump administration have been an uphill battle. But our resistance is making a difference. Just a few of our successes against the odds:

- Significant growth in capacity to engage with the grassroots, thanks to intensive campaigns against Keystone, Dakota Access and Neil Gorsuch.

- Accelerated growth in clean energy, with more than half of all new installed capacity on the electric grid coming from wind and solar.

- Four coal-fired plant closure announcements in the first quarter of 2017 alone.

- A statewide ban on fracking in Maryland.

- Twenty-seven cities and municipalities committed to 100% Clean Energy.

Help us keep up the pressure on Congress and ramp up our clean energy advocacy in the states with your monthly donation now. Remember, every donation made before midnight tomorrow will be matched up to $100 -- so please give now!

Of course, despite these wins undeniable threats to our planet remain: Fossil fuel magnates in charge of the key federal agencies tasked with environmental policy. Water pollution safeguards gutted by the GOP Congress. A flood of executive orders undermining national monuments designations, pursuing offshore drilling along fragile coastlines and, of course, pulling the U.S. out of the Paris Climate Agreement.

We're far from defeated -- in fact, we're having a real impact and scoring some critical wins as we resist this White House while making progress at the state and local levels -- but we can't continue to fight at this intensity without your help now. Can we count on your monthly gift before midnight tomorrow? Please, rush your monthly gift before this generous $100 match offer expires at midnight tomorrow -- together we'll keep the goals of the Paris Agreement alive and the Trump administration at bay.

When Trump was officially sworn in as our 45th president six months ago, I asked you not to feel hopeless -- or helpless. Thankfully, you answered the Sierra Club's call with your voice, your feet, and your financial support.

I'm so grateful for your tenacity on behalf of wildlife and human health. Together we will continue to resist the Trump agenda and defend the planet we love.

With determination,

Michael Brune

Executive Director

Sierra Club
