“We’re realizing these days that we have no chance of fighting climate change and creating a clean energy economy, much less protecting wildlife and wild land, if we can’t also protect our democracy.”
- Michael Brune, Executive Director, Sierra Club

“By decimating the Voting Rights Act, the Supreme Court attacked the very principle of equality in our democracy. Many of the communities scarred by voter suppression are the same places where the worst environmental injustices occur – and things will only get worse without the protection of the Voting Rights Act. Nothing short of our children’s future is at stake. That is why the Sierra Club is demanding forceful action to right this wrong and protect every American voter. ”
- Michael Brune, Executive Director, Sierra Club
