Powerful change starts with the grassroots. By engaging with your community, you have the power to change your town or city and inspire others to join your movement. Grassroots organizing allows you to directly share your stories and needs with decision makers and create change that works for the people in your community, not corporations or people in power.
Through Sierra Club Maine’s Climate and Community Action Team program, Mainers are taking charge of their future; by spearheading community solar projects, installing solar panels on school or town buildings, developing town energy efficiency plans, advocating for public transportation, launching recycling/compost programs, opposing dirty energy projects, and much more!
