“Sierra Club recognizes the intersectionality of Environmental and Racial justice and the critical importance of electing leaders who will act boldly to fight for both,” stated a news release from the organization. “Space is limited, so please register for this powerful event today. And please invite friends you think might be interested. As Bill McKibben recently put it, “This next election is about the next 10,000 years.” Let’s do everything possible to make it count.”
