Conservation

"To educate and enlist humanity to protect and restore the quality of the natural and human environment."

Sierra Club National Political Team 'Listening Session'

The National Political Team, a committee of Sierra Club volunteers and staff, will hold a “listening session” on Sunday, June 30th from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm at the Communications Workers of America Hall at 1408 N. Washington Ave., Dallas 75204. The national committee believes for the first time in recent memory that Texas could be a swing state next year in the federal elections. This meeting will provide a chance for Dallas Sierrans to impact the 2020 national political process by providing input to decision makers and planners. Your opinions are being solicited now to help mold the selection process for the National Board’s endorsement of the 2020 presidential and congressional candidates and to help the national team decide which states to send their staff organizers and financial resources.  

The meeting will also provide a chance for Dallas Sierrans to learn more about the Sierra Club election program for next year at both the state and national levels. Plan to attend this important and informative meeting to get involved early and let our National Political Team know how interested and engaged our local members are about Texas.   Next year could be a historic year politically for the environment, and you can be a part of the effort.

Your RSVP will be appreciated so that we can plan for room space and refreshments. Contact David Griggs at wdgriggs1@gmail.com
