Next Saturday, March 24th the kids and families of March For Our Lives will take to the streets of Washington, DC, and events around the country to demand that their lives and safety become a priority.
School safety is not a political issue. There cannot be two sides to doing everything in our power to ensure the lives and futures of children who are at risk of dying when they should be learning, playing, and growing. No special interest group, no political agenda is more critical than the timely passage of legislation to effectively address the gun violence issues that are rampant in our country.
Join the march next Saturday at 12pm between 3rd and 12th streets on Pennslyvania Ave NW.

Join the D.C. ReInvest Coalition while we petition in Ward 2 this Saturday asking that DC divest from Wells Fargo! They're bank that funds fossil fuel pipelines and private prisons while engaging in racist and predatory lending practices.

To support the Paris Climate Agreement, Mayor Muriel Bowser has pledged to make DC carbon-neutral and climate resilient by 2050. Are you curious how we will meet these ambitious goals, and what this might mean for our residents? Join the DC Chapter of the Sierra Club for a conversation with DC Department of Energy of Environment (DOEE) Director Tommy Wells on Thursday, April 5 from 6pm to 8pm to learn more about how DC can continue to be a national and global environmental leader.
You must RSVP via the 'ticket' link to attend!
Today we’re testifying at the District Office of Campaign Finance (OCF) and the District Department of Public Works (DPW) Oversight hearings.
At the OCF hearing we’re asking that Mayor Bowser fully fund the DC Fair Elections legislation for the FY 2019 budget. If the Mayor chooses not to fund we’re asking that the committee fund in their budget for public education, more employees, and upgrades to their data system. These costs would amount to only .05% of the entire DC budget. That’s a small price to pay for a more equitable and inclusive democracy.
We've got the Tuesday blues but watching this made it better.
Come meet fellow Sierra Clubbers and learn how going solar and buying an electric vehicle can save money and the planet.
Plus, meet your neighbors and other environmentally-minded DC residents! Make sure to RSVP so we know you're joining us.
Good news! The District of Columbia will receive $8 million to invest in addressing the massive amount of pollution Volkswagen dumped into our air.
The only way to accelerate toward a clean vehicle future is for D.C. to choose exhaust-free, zero-emission vehicles. Investment benefits and locations should prioritize the communities most impacted by air pollution.
Tell DOEE that you want to prioritize environmental justice when finalizing their plan on how to spend the $8 million!
In the wake of climate disasters like Hurricane Maria, women are called upon to find food and clean water, secure safe housing, and care for loved ones. It’s time for Congress to pass the Women and Climate Change Act to prevent and respond to the effects of climate change on women in the U.S. and across the globe. #WomenClimateAct
Even though we don't have a vote in Congress (#DCStatehood), you can still take action!
The sun won’t rise at the North Pole until March 20th, but temperatures have soared above freezing in the dead of winter--this is unprecedented warming for the top of the world.
