Political Action

Political activities are primarily directed by our Political Committee. The Committee is responsible for all endorsement activities, as well as supporting those candidates who we have endorsed. We also try to maintain contact with all of our legislators, developing relationships with them and educating them when necessary.

Are you concerned about conservation, habitat protection, and energy policy? Do you have an interest in politics? Do you want laws that protect our environment? Do you want laws that protect public involvement in the political process? If so... Join the Santa Cruz Group Sierra Club Political Committee and help elect environmentally friendly candidates!  We endorse and support environmental candidates for local, state, and Congressional races as well as lobbies elected officials on Sierra Club priority issues. We focus on races that of interest to our volunteers and important for the environment in Santa Cruz County.
