Sierra Club (National)
Founded by legendary conservationist John Muir in 1892, the Sierra Club is now the nation's largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization -- with more than two million members and supporters. Our successes range from protecting millions of acres of wilderness to helping pass the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and Endangered Species Act. More recently, we've made history by leading the charge to move away from the dirty fossil fuels that cause climate disruption and toward a clean energy economy.
Cape Fear Group of the Sierra Club
The Cape Fear group, one of 14 local groups in the North Carolina Chapter, serves over 1500 members in Bladen, Brunswick, Columbus, Duplin, New Hanover, Pender, and Robeson counties. The club is involved in development of environmental and conservation programs. While addressing the current conservation campaign issues of "Clean Energy/Dirty Fuels," through support of solar and wind energy and advocacy for the Clean Power Plan, the club is also focuses on endorsement of environmentally friendly elected officials.
N.C. Chapter of the Sierra Club
Established in 1970, the North Carolina Chapter advocates across the state and in our capitol, from the mountains to the coast, for a clean, healthy North Carolina safe for both current and future citizens. The Chapter has over 15,000 members and 14 local groups across the state, a statewide office in downtown Raleigh, and a field office in Asheville. In our nearly 40 year history in the state, the North Carolina Chapter has worked to pass groundbreaking environmental legislation on both the local and national level. Past issues range from putting an end to hog waste pollution to protecting the integrity of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.
Currently, we are:
1) Protecting North Carolina's fragile coastline and mountain ecosystems.
2) Pushing for healthy air and enforceable pollution control standard.
3) Improving and connecting the state's public transportation infrastructure.
4) Fighting to bring clean energy solutions to North Carolina.
