Please attend the Sierra Club Political Leadership Awards - become a Sponsor - and support our work in Los Angeles and Orange Counties.


We urge you to consider the environment when you vote. Only by electing candidates who share the view of the Sierra Club on the importance of the protection of the environment can we make our state the model for the rest of the nation.

The Sierra Club is California’s largest environmental organization, with 13 chapters and approximately 160,000 members statewide. In order to give its California members a strong effective voice in the State Capitol, the Club Board of Directors created Sierra Club California, a legislative advocacy organization that lobbies the state legislature, the administration, and state government agencies to protect California’s natural resources and to improve the health and safety of Californians.


Angeles Chapter political activists work at the local level in both Los Angeles and Orange counties to promote the election of environmentally sensitive candidates to public office, by recommending endorsements to the chapter Executive Committee, organizing support for endorsed candidates and maintaining a liaison with successful candidates after election. Groups, sections, committees, and task forces are eligible to appoint a voting member of the committees, but individuals may also become members.

Please donate to the Angeles Chapter Political Committeeto support its work in Los Angeles and Orange counties. For more information, please contact the Political Committee at
