The Rochester Area Sierra Club is working for a just, equitable, and fast transition to 100% renewable energy in Southeast Minnesota.
What We Do
The Rochester Leadership Team…
Provides input on Sierra Club’s campaign goals;
Develops and supports organizing strategies and tactics through working groups;
Engages the Rochester community through outreach, communications, mobilization, and leadership development;
And builds relationships with partner organizations, community leaders and new volunteers to advance shared vision and goals.
The Rochester Leadership Team meets on the second Monday of each month at 6:30pm. Meetings are held virtually (for now) and typically 1.5 hours. Team members meet to build relationships, share updates, plan and get work done. Team members commit to volunteering about 2 hours per month outside of meetings to plan and execute various activities, including participating in or supporting various working groups.
Our team supports the following volunteer working groups:
Clean Energy: Volunteer to collect 2,000 petition signatures from individuals, elected officials, city and county commissions, locally owned businesses and community-based organizations to transition Rochester to 100% Fossil Free Energy for electricity, buildings, and transportation.
Narrative Building: Volunteer to support monthly community-written articles about environment, climate & energy topics in the Rochester Post Bulletin and Med City Beat; build relationships with local reporters, and provide updates to the executive committee
