The Sierra Club is a national, member-supported environmental organization, which seeks to influence public policy in both Washington and the state capitals through public education and grass-roots political action.

The New Jersey Chapter Mission Statement:

To explore, enjoy, and protect the wild places of the earth; 
To practice and promote the responsible use of the earth's ecosystems and resources; 
To educate and enlist humanity to protect and restore the quality of the natural and human environments.

Proposed ExxonMobil Settlement

The ExxonMobil Proposed Settlement is even worse than we expected. Under the original proposal, New Jersey was to receive $8.9 billion for natural resources damages, but under this deal the state would only receive $225 million. The agreement now includes 16 additional sites and an estimated 800 gas stations, not just the two refineries. Read about the Proposed Settlement and make your voice heard.

Win-Win-Win with Solar

Save money on your electric bill, fight climate change and support the New Jersey Chapter of the Sierra Club. Through a partnership with Sungevity, a leading national solar service provider, the Sierra Club is offering its members and supporters an affordable way to go solar.  For each home that goes solar through this program, Sungevity will give $750 to the New Jersey Chapter. More information and a free solar quote.
