Local, state and U.S. federal political issues and legislative initiatives gain a lot of attention from Sierra Club members. Candidate and legislative campaigns may earn Sierra Club endorsement. Some of our members are active in politics in their own right. The Northeast Group of the Sierra Club is the only environmental organization in Northeast Florida who can endorse candidates for office and lobby our government. Endorsements for local races are discussed at meetings and in our Sierra Sentry newsletter.
A formal process assures that Sierra Club involvement with politics is with decorum and is firmly anchored to our goals. Our Political/Legislative committee interviews candidates, leads campaigns and supports education of voters. The Sierra Club is committed to government and politics in the sunshine. Clean elections and political campaign funding reform are efforts we endorse to assure full voice to each voter.
