7.3 Sierra Club: Issue Questions




Description

This article is from the Sierra Club FAQ, by Dan Anderson danx@cts.com.

7.3 Sierra Club: Issue Questions

7.3.1 A garbage dump is being build in my county. What can I do? What is the
Club doing?

Call your chapter. You'll get information on what the statewide
Club is doing about it and how you can get involved.
(from _The Planet_ (May 1997)

7.3.2 What is the Club's official policy on global warming and ozone depletion?

Visit the Club's Web site at http://www.sierraclub.org to view
the Club's conservation policies. Or contact the Information
Center at (415) 977-5653 or
(from _The Planet_ (May 1997)

7.3.3 I am doing a radio interview for my local Sierra Club group. Do you
have background materials on the history and accomplishments of the Club?

Contact the Information Center at the national office at (415)
977-5653 or e-mail: for written
materials on Club history.
(from _The Planet_ (May 1997)

7.3.4 I'm writing a report on tropical rainforests for my 5th grade class.
Can the Club send me information?

Contact the Information Center at (415) 977-5653 or e-mail
for factsheets on various environmental issues.
(from _The Planet_ (May 1997)

7.3.5 I'm working on sprawl issues in my chapter. Is there a national
committee or task force at the Club I can contact for more
information?

Call the Activist Desk in San Francisco at (415) 977-5747 for the name
of a volunteer contact or for a copy of the "Guide to Volunteers."
(from _The Planet_ (May 1997)

7.3.6 I'm interested in population issues. What can I do?
In all honesty, I would work with the Sierra Club on most environmental
issues, but not on population--a controversial issue the Club fears to tread.
For more information, see the links below.
