The North Carolina Chapter of the Sierra Club works to elect pro-environmental candidates.
The mission of the Sierra Club political program is to preserve the environment through nonpartisan grassroots political action. The principal goals of the program are carried out by our all-volunteer Political Committee and volunteers across the state, who work to:
To elect candidates who will support and promote environmental protection;
To raise public awareness about environmental issues and elevate the priority of these issues for decision-makers;
To encourage Club members and other environmentalists to participate in the political process;
To advance the Club’s conservation agenda by building relationships with legislators and other elected officials; and,
To strengthen the Sierra Club’s capacity to elect pro-environment candidates at every level of government.
