Environmental and Social Justice


 Enable all to equitably participate in meeting mutual needs, especially those addressed in the Sierra Club’s three environmental principles:

  • The right of all people to a clean and healthful environment
  • An end to pollution
  • The precautionary principle. Support structural reforms that unify by addressing segregation and the excessive low wage employment that underlies disparate environmental outcomes in low income communities and communities of color
