Tennessee Sierra is a Chapter of the world’s oldest, largest, and most influential grassroots environmental organization. With 44,000 members and supporters in every county across the state, we have the resources to empower people and to influence public policy through community activism, public education, lobbying, and litigation.
Our mission is to Explore, Enjoy and Protect the Planet.
With the support of our grassroots volunteers and organizers we work to protect our air, water and ecosystems and promote sustainable solutions that ensure safe and healthy communities for today and in the future. We work to stop polluters that are trying to remove our mountaintops, frack our forests, pollute our streams and keep coal plants running for decades. We are dedicated to replacing dirty energy with better efficiency and renewable energy, like solar and wind instead of oil and nuclear while advocating for economic diversification in communities most impact by the transitioning energy economy. We strive to protect both urban and rural places from pollution and unnecessary development and we defend native ecosystems, stream ecology, endangered species, and special and treasured places across Tennessee.
