Weekly Action Alerts

This is our weekly Action Alert digest. Here you'll receive all of the information you need to become active, contact our legislators, and make a difference for the environment. Updated April 30.


Vote YES on Amendment 1! Florida's Land and Water Legacy Campaign

Passing this amendment would set aside funding  for the protection and conservation of our parks, beaches and undeveloped land around Florida.  In 2015, this would provide more than 600 million dollars to environmental causes across the state. 
"The power to protect Florida's land and water for future generations is in your hands." 

Your Help is Needed!
Volunteers are needed on Friday, August 8th to hand out fliers and talk to people about Amendment 1 from 11 am to  1 pm.
Contact Jessica at JKFessenden@gmail.com for more information.

We are only a few months away from the big election! We are still looking for people to help out with our campaign, including:
•Organizers
•Speakers
•People to help us table at upcoming events

We are looking forward to a bustling August and September, and really need some additional support!
If you can spare ONE day during campaign season to help raise awareness about the importance of passing Amendment 1 this November, please contact Jessica Fessenden at JKFessenden@gmail.com and put "Legacy" in the subject line.
We are looking for all sorts of support! If you have any questions or are interested in helping in some way, please let us know.

Rally For Energy Savings!

Sierra Club Beyond Coal is holding a campaign event in Tallahassee on Monday, July 21st at 11am. Please let us know if you are interested in carpooling to this event! We hope to have a huge group of climate activists there!

Here is a message from Beyond Coal:
This July, the Florida Public Service Commission will hear proposals to raise energy savings goals for Florida's big power companies, giving us the opportunity to bring local, affordable solar power and energy efficiency investments to Florida over the next ten years. Setting high goals for energy efficiency will create jobs, lower bills, and protect the climate. But the power companies don't want to make changes, even if it means higher bills and more air pollution for Florida consumers.

Join us on Monday July, 21 at 11AM, as we rally in Tallahassee and show our support for strong energy savings goals at the official public hearing! We will rally for clean energy, hear from inspiring speakers and take action to show the PSC that Floridians want the big power companies to save more energy, invest in solar and lower our bills.

To find out more, contact Julia Hathaway, 202-315-8211, julia.hathaway@sierraclub.org.

Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement Bad For All
