Sierra Club Programs

A section of the U.S.-Mexico border wall entering the sea
More than 600 miles of border walls and barriers have been constructed in all four southern border states. This reckless project has meant dire consequences for vast expanses of pristine wild lands, including wildlife refuges, wilderness areas, and national forests. The threat of a mandate to build hundreds of miles of additional wall continues to loom in Congress.
Corrupting corporate money pouring into our government. Assaults on the right to vote. Gridlock and obstruction in Washington. There’s no question -- our democracy is in trouble. To protect our environment, we must protect our democracy.

To discuss and explore the linkages between environmental quality and social justice, and to promote dialogue, increased understanding, and appropriate action.
Power Generation
The Sierra Club is the nation's leader in grassroots environmental litigation. We enforce the environmental laws and target the most pressing issues of our generation, such as climate change, fracking and tar sands, through strategic legal advocacy at the federal, state and local level nationwide.

$1 Million of $500 Million
The Sierra Club works with grassroots partners across the globe to build awareness, strengthen local voices, and transition international public finance beyond dangerous fossil fuels and toward a safe and sustainable future with clean energy access for all.
Unions march for climate justice
The Sierra Club has a long history of solidarity with the labor and economic justice movements.  We work with labor because we're stronger together.  We need millions of working families to help us end climate disruption and build a clean energy economy that works for all. 
A nuclear power plant
The Sierra Club remains unequivocally opposed to nuclear energy. Although nuclear plants have been in operation for less than 60 years, we now have seen three serious disasters. Tragically, it took a horrific disaster in Japan to remind the world that none of the fundamental problems with nuclear power have ever been addressed.
The Sierra Club will promote leaders who take bold action on climate and clean energy, and expose those who still choose toxic money over human health. We'll have plenty coming for the 2016 Presidential & Congressional races.
Sierra Club Trade
The Sierra Club's Responsible Trade Program has shed light on the environmental threats posed by our current global trading system for more than two decades. We believe that trade done right can promote broadly shared prosperity while protecting workers and the environment. We work to ensure that U.S. trade policy supports, rather than undermines, critical public interest goals and protects the environment and climate.
The Sierra Student Coalition (SSC) is a broad network of high school and college-aged youth from across the country working for environmental, climate, and social justice.
The Sierra Club works to protect people and the environment from toxic chemical pollution. We promote the use of safer chemicals, help clean up Superfund and other contaminated sites, and advocate for stronger state and federal laws.
