Sierra Club Connecticut is the state chapter of the oldest and most influential environmental organization in the nation. Our staff and volunteers work tirelessly to promote our mission here in the state.
Our mission is to advocate for and protect the resources of our state, from the waters of the Long Island Sound, to our hundreds of miles of coastal areas, to our forested upland hills, and the flora and fauna that occupy these places and the spaces in between. We are also advocates for and defenders of the people of Connecticut. We seek to make Connecticut a more equitable state by working alongside and organizing with communities most adversely affected by fossil fuel energy infrastructure, waste incinerators, and other polluting industries. We seek to engage with, listen to, and amplify the voices of residents and allies from environmental justice communities that suffer the burden of air and water pollution and climate disruption.
How we fulfill this vision:
Fight for clean and healthy communities for all people in the state
Promote clean air, land, and water
Fight systemic and environmental racism
Fight to end fossil fuel expansion, especially fracked gas
Promote clean energy for all
Promote clean transportation for all
Promote Zero Waste policies
Protect open space and help to guarantee access to public lands is equitable
Protect and enhance our democracy here in the state
Protect wildlife in Connecticut and around the world
Help guarantee justice for all
Explore and enjoy the natural beauty of our state through Outings and Inspiring Connections Outdoors programs.
We have 11,000 members and over 40,000 supporters here in the state. The environment is an important issue to our citizens and we are dedicated to make sure that our elected officials and business community value it just as much.
