Come and help Sierra Club work to elect environmental Champions to office to represent North East Ohio in Columbus and Washington DC. Proceeds will help the Ohio Sierra Club staff and volunteers to engage our members and the public to elect our endorsed candidates.

Learn about local environmental issues and solutions and meet Sierra Club members. We will also invite our endorsed candidates and have speakers to inform and inspire use about environmental politics from a North East Ohio perspective.
