Sierra Club Offering Environmental Justice Training

The Sierra Club is circulating the notice below:

Sierra Club leaders: Here is an opportunity to further excite and perhaps engage your fellow Club members on environmental justice issues that surround our environmental work. We are offering an online university-style learning experience, "Tipping the Scales for Environmental Justice," for Sierra Club activists (or potential activists) who are concerned about the inter-related environmental and social justice issues that face many of America's communities. The mission of the course is to engage in dialogue, deepen our understanding of the issues facing many of our country?s poorest communities, and begin to learn how to take effective action.

To learn more and apply for this course, next offered from February 5 th to March 12 th , go to Training/Tutorials on Clubhouse at, or directly to pass this notice along to your chapter and group executive committee, conservation committee, and others you think could benefit from this learning experience.Please contact me if you have questions (or suggestions)Frank Orem, Training Governance Committee 503/635-2607
