Environmental Justice Update

Environmental Justice Update

For far too long Environmental Justice communities here in Connecticut have disproportionately borne the burden of our fossil fuel economy by way of pollution and poor air quality. Help us change this situation and work towards ensuring a healthy environment for everyone.

Chapter Chair Update

Chapter Chair Update

Sierra Club Connecticut had a busy month celebrating Earth Day (every day!). We’ve also been working hard during this legislative session and hope you’ll read more about our priority bills. Join us to speak up and make a difference in our state—stand up for the environment and Environmental Justice communities.

Justice and Equity Demand Equal Representation

Justice and Equity Demand Equal Representation

Connecticut has some of the most restrictive voting laws in the country. Fortunately, there are several bills up for a vote in the state legislature that would help alleviate these restrictions. Add your voice as we push to expand access to both voter registration and to the ballot box.

Connecticut Seeks to Ban Dangerous PFAS

Connecticut Seeks to Ban Dangerous PFAS

Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) are a class of human-made “forever chemicals” that are persistent, do not break down in the environment, and are linked to a myriad of health problems. We are working to get these chemicals out of products and out of our environment.

Connecticut Must Say “NO” to Fossil Fuel Interests

Connecticut Must Say “NO” to Fossil Fuel Interests

Fossil fuel interests are working against policies that will get us off fossil fuels and against efforts to accelerate the transition to renewables. We must fight back and create a path towards a greener future. Find out how we are working to move Beyond Gas and clean up our state.

Speak Up for Clean Transportation Legislation

Speak Up for Clean Transportation Legislation

Transportation pollution in Connecticut is a serious problem for public health, environmental justice and our climate. By adopting policies that increase deployment of clean, pollution-free vehicles and making our communities more walkable, bikeable, and transit-friendly, Connecticut can simultaneously improve air quality and public health, and address environmental justice and the climate crisis.
