Approximately 1.3 billion people around the world live in darkness, often without access to even small amounts of life-changing electricity. The good news is that we can change this by deploying off-grid renewable energy technologies. These technologies are available today, and are better suited to meeting the challenges of energy access than centralized coal projects and grid extension. That means we can solve energy poverty and climate change at the same time.

The Sierra Club organizes into groups focused on the environmental concerns within our local communities. The Washington State Chapter encompasses the following groups.
From National Political Director, Melissa Williams, "We don’t need any more evidence – the time for action on the climate crisis is now. The American people know.

Turn old jars into wintry wonderlands
There is no way around it: Coal kills. The Sierra Club partners with grassroots groups around the world as they demand a say in what happens to their air, land, and water, and as they call for an end to international public financing of dangerous coal projects.
