Michigan Chapter

Citizen Lobbyists

From the founding of the Sierra Club over 100 years ago, Sierra Club members have lobbied elected officials to preserve and protect our environment. Participating in the legislative process is one of the most important activities of the Sierra Club and our members!

Would you like an opportunity to influence the legislative process regarding important environmental issues such as clean energy, global warming, protecting the Great Lakes, saving our forests, or stopping animal factory pollution? Sierra Club's Citizen Lobbyists play an important role in communicating the message of conservation and environmental protection to Michigan’s legislators. Personal contact with your legislator could make the difference between a vote against the environment and a vote for the environment!

Sierra Club staff and volunteers monitor and participate in the legislative process on issues prioritized by the Chapter's Conservation Committee. The Chapter's legislative program publishes a legislative scorecard, coordinates citizen lobby days, and facilitates communication between lawmakers and their Sierra Club member constituents via In-District Meetings.

As an active member or Citizen Lobbyist, you can help by participating in lobby meetings, by writing letters to the editor of your local paper on key environmental issues, or by responding to action alerts when environmental legislation hangs in the balance.

No experience is necessary!! We welcome all interested members and citizens. Our 200+ trained Lead Lobbyists know the ropes, understand citizen lobbying and will help you get started.

Sounds great! How do I sign up?

If you’re ready to participate, or if you have additional questions, please call Mike Berkowitz at (517) 484-2372 or send an e-mail to mike.berkowitz@sierraclub.org. Thanks for your help!
