Cabinet Nominations, Executive Orders, Climate Denial
Every day there is an attack on the progress we have made to protect our environment, limit the expansion of greenhouse gas emissions from the burning of more fossil fuels, halting dangerous pipelines and the social justices that we have come to expect.
We don't know what is coming next, but our reponse will be the same - to RESIST and continue to organize.

Sometime this winter
Woodlands Cemetery, Philadelphia
Have you ever tried snowshoeing? It's been awhile? Just curious? Come fasten on a pair of snowshoes with the Sierra Club SPG at The Woodlands in West Philly!
In partnership with REI, we are providing snowshoes for 20-30 minutes of snowshoeing around the grounds of the beautiful historic cemetery and snowy landscape. Join the Sierra Club SPG's MeetUp to get a notification for updates on snowshoe outings, and start watching for snow!
