Take Action with the Sierra Club
First, the bad news: Donald Trump's assault on the environment is even worse than we'd anticipated. He's unraveling basic and hard-won protections for clean air and water. As a former EPA head explained to The New York Times, Trump's administration is “taking a meat ax to the protections of public health and environment and then hiding it.”
Now, the good news: There is still much that can be done at the local level to fight climate change and protect our air, water, and public lands.
When I look at the Sierra Club's 63 chapters all over the country, I feel hopeful. I see a resolve and toughness in my colleagues' eyes. I hear it in their voices. Our chapter volunteers and staff are working long hours to ensure that there's something left for all of us after this administration leaves.
And right now, Bloomberg Philanthropies has offered to make a one-time matching gift every time someone signs up to become a monthly donor to their local chapter.* Here's how it works:
Local efforts will mean the difference between a wholesale backslide on climate change, or forward progress over the next few years. Even if the administration pulls out of the Paris climate accord, Sierra Club's chapters are working to:
- Push mayors and city councils to commit to powering cities and states with 100 percent clean energy - Fight for statewide laws that lock in clean energy commitments and remove incentives for fossil fuels - Protect our public lands from increased fossil fuel development
But they can't do it without people like you. Please help ensure that they win this fight by committing to support your local chapter on an ongoing basis. Every dollar you contribute stays in Florida to build power locally and pass strong laws to protect our environment.
This is a great opportunity to make an enormous impact at a time when we urgently need resources to push back against this unmitigated attack on the environment. http://click.emails.sierraclub.org/?qs=78ca4eef5136873e318bb360a49c3a7c258424816c82625ece6488fd24662e2dfb6260ab1770c6cebeb7f2444617624333ca5b34c23e254e256073c455f7fe95 Please consider making a donation today.
