National Sierra Club Board President to Speak at Chapter Dinner March 26

“A Deeper Shade of Green”

Aaron Mair of New York will bring his message of inclusion and diversity to Kern County

 As Sierra Club struggles to remain relevant to the diverse cultural interests of a population that is growing younger and more urban by the year, how can we re-tool our capacities to meet these and other 21st century challenges within the broader climate movement and learn to develop allies and partners? Aaron Mair, Sierra Club President Elected in 2015
