Resist In Your Community

Collage of SC activists talking to their Members of Congress about the GND

We've seen it at the polls. We've seen it in the halls of Congress as young activists demand leadership and action. And we've seen it from every one of you for the past two years as we've fought to stop Trump's dangerous and hateful agenda across the country.

It's more important than ever for us to get involved in our local communities. We've seen first hand that, even as Trump tries to bury his head in the sand in Washington, we can succeed at making progress locally, stopping pipelines, retiring coal plants, and pushing commitments to 100% clean energy.

On July 16, 2019, thousands of Sierra Club activists joined a telephone town-hall call with Sierra Club executive director Michael Brune, Sierra Club Living Economy Program campaign strategist Anthony Torres, Sierra Club My Generation Campaign organizer Yassi Kavezade, Sierra Club Living Economy Program director Ben Beachy, Sierra Club Resist Campaign distributed Organizer Chelsea Watson, and Sunrise Movement co-founder Varshini Prakash to discuss how we can keep growing the Green New Deal. 

Listen to the tele-town hall here.

We need you to stay involved now more than ever! Here's what you can do:

  1. Join our Resist Facebook Group
    In this private Facebook group, you can create community, find ways to get involved, and take action! Be sure to answer the two prompt questions about norms before we can approve you to join. 

  2. Join the national Texting Team
    Folks on the Texting Team sign up for shifts to use this fun peer-to-peer texting tool called Hustle, and recruit other Sierra Club members and supporters to get involved in actions and events in their areas.
