Featured Community Partner: Sierra Club Kanza Group

The Sierra Club is the most enduring and influential grassroots environmental organization in the United States. The Club amplifies the power of 3.8 million members and supporters to defend everyone’s right to a healthy world.

The Sierra Club includes a national organization, state chapters and local groups. In eastern Kansas, Sierra Club is represented by the Kanza Group. Limitations imposed by COVID-19 have impacted get-togethers, but everyone is invited to join virtual Sierra Club meetings now via Zoom. Visit the Kansas Chapter website where a calendar provides information on meetings, outings, monthly newsletters and action alerts.

Sierra Club provides education on climate change, alternative energy and sustainability. The Club lobbies for laws that protect parks, public lands, and the health of the only planet humanity has to call home. In election years, Sierra Club supports candidates with positive positions and voting records on environmental issues.

Today, there are serious challenges – a warming climate, unprecedented levels of pollution and powerful special interest groups undermining basic environmental and human health protections. Educate yourself on climate change and environmental issues. Register to vote … and please vote.

Voting can effect positive change in our world. It’s the single most important thing every citizen can do for the environment this year.
