Attacked. Targeted. Scrapped.

Take Action with the Sierra Club

Dear Deanne -

There's really no sugarcoating 2017. Donald Trump roared into Washington in January and stuffed just about every environmental protection we'd won over the past decade into the shredder. A few lowlights:

However, the news isn't all bleak. We've seen lawmakers, business leaders, and everyday grassroots supporters like you step up to protect the planet. We're retiring coal plants, locking in clean energy commitments, and fighting the administration in court. But we can't do it all without your generous year-end support today.

Because the next few months are so crucial, a generous donor has stepped up to MATCH every gift made before midnight tonight dollar-for-dollar up to $250,000 -- so don't miss this chance to double your impact. Rush your gift now. Please, rush youryear-end gift to the Sierra Club now. Remember your gift will be matched, DOUBLING your impact, so please don't wait! RENEW YOUR SUPPORT With your help, Deanne, we're fighting Trump and his fossil fuel backers, every day. We've taken the administration to court 51 times-- and that's just in Year One! Keystone is still locked in a regulatory battle. Zinke hasn't touched Giant Sequoia or drilled Bear's Ears.

While the damage inflicted by the Trump administration to our environmental agenda during the past year is very real, so is the progress we're making on behalf of the planet we love.

First, we officially made it over the halfway point in the Sierra Club's coal plant retirement campaign. As of today, we've retired 268 with 255 to go. It's a major milestone for clean energy and human health-- but we must keep going until we have shuttered every carbon-spewing, heart and asthma attack-inducing plant in the U.S.

Likewise, we had 47 cities commit to 100% Clean Energy this year -- bringing the total to 165 cities in the U.S.and more than 1,000 worldwide. Despite Trump's backsliding, strong American climate leadership remains-- and we must build on it, recruiting even more mayors, CEOs, pastors, community leaders and others to commit to helping us achieve 100% clean, renewable energy across the U.S. by 2050.

Deanne, will you help the Sierra Club keep fighting Trump and building on the progress we've made with your year-end gift now? Remember, your membership gift will be DOUBLED by a generous donor, so don't wait! We'll also send you our eco-chic reusable bag set as a thank you gift. Rush your year-end gift to the Sierra Club now and have it MATCHED dollar-for-dollar. RENEW YOUR SUPPORT We have time to save the planet. We also have the plans. Now we just need the funds. We need you. Please, help with your year-end gift now.

Thank you for your unwavering support of the Sierra Club, and Happy New Year.

Michael Brune

Executive Director
