We're proud of our record!

For over 120 years the Sierra Club has been America’s best-known environmental advocate. The Angeles Chapter, nearly 40,000 strong, is the largest and most influential of the 63 Sierra Club chapters nationwide.

With so many threats to the environment in 2015, simply preserving the gifts of nature isn’t enough. “Business as usual” is not sustainable. Failing to change doesn’t mean things will go on as before -- because they can’t. Change is urgent, and you can help.

Your voice and financial support will help Make Change Happen!
