Sierra Club PA Chapter
The Sierra Club is America's oldest, largest, and most influential grassroots environmental organization. The Club promotes conservation by influencing public policy through grassroots activism, public education, lobbying, and litigation. We work to defend the environment at all levels of government including U.S. Congress, state legislatures, and state and federal courts.
Our Mission Explore, enjoy and protect the wild places of the earth. Practice and promote the responsible use of the earth's ecosystems and resources. Educate and enlist humanity to protect and restore the quality of the natural and human environment. Use all lawful means to carry out these objectives.
The Pennsylvania Chapter The Chapter is a volunteer led organization. Our Executive Committee oversees the following aspects of Chapter involvement:
Conservation: The Chapter Conservation Committee allocates staff time and financial resources for about six of the many issues that come up each year. The choice is determined by a variety of factors, including bills that are pending in the legislature, precedent-setting cases, or strong support from Sierra Club members.
Politics: The Executive Committee discusses political campaigns and issues, determines which candidates to endorse, and holds elected officials accountable.
Organizational development: The Executive Committee oversees the operation of the Club’s Harrisburg office, identifies new leaders, and provides them with mentoring and training.
