Today's organization focuses on protecting the environment and combating the climate change that affects everyone on this planet.
Founded by legendary conservationist John Muir in 1892, the Sierra Club is now the nation's largest and most influential grassroots environmental organization -- with more than two million members and supporters. Their successes range from protecting millions of acres of wilderness to helping pass the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and Endangered Species Act. More recently, they've made history by leading the charge to move away from the dirty fossil fuels that cause climate disruption and toward a clean energy economy.
Our Wild America fights to preserve our wild heritage in the face of threats from mining, drilling, and climate disruption.
Get Outside reaches across economic lines, cultures, and communities, to engage everyone - including military and youth - to explore and enjoy the natural world.
Beyond Coal, Beyond Oil and Beyond Natural Gas seek to wean the nation off of dirty and dangerous fossil fuels and destructive drilling in favor of clean energy sources.
Ready for 100% is a movement of people working to inspire our leaders to embrace a vision of healthier communities powered by 100% clean energy by 2050.

"From my studio I look at—and most days paint—acres and acres of public forest in the Catskills Park. So maybe I’m spoiled, but that doesn’t mean I’m ungrateful: Please support the Sierra Club! They keep wild land available for everyone to enjoy."
Steven Weinberg writes and illustrates kids’ books when he isn’t painting the woods and mountains surrounding his house.
Each day of December, we will spread awareness on a carefully chosen organization promoting a safe environment for all Americans. Each cause is lovingly illustrated by a different artist.
Give thoughtfully this holiday season for a better America.
