Hello! We are a team of researchers from Grinnell College, and we are conducting research about people’s experiences as members of Big 10 Environmental Movement Organizations. The purpose of our research is to learn more about how members and supporters of the Big 10 think about how their organizations engage with environmental issues and questions of social justice. If you’d be willing, please take / share our brief survey found at the link below.
Hi, I waited too late to vote by paper ballot (sorry!) and was trying to vote online at the link provided.
https://vote.escvote.com/sierra/I have tried two computers and several browsers and it keeps being blocked as a phishing site.
I realize I waited too late but now I can't seem to vote. I tried to look up whether there is a slate of "grassroots" candidates this year like last year, but there doesn't seem to be. Nevertheless, I wrote down my list of five I was going to vote for, and also left a message at the phone number it said to call 1-866-720-4357 but looks like I'm not going to be able to vote...
Ready to buy, exchange (for issue from another year) preferably a mint or even a used copy of this calendar.
They are suffering from the same mismanagement as an organization as their policies guided mismanagment of our forests. Mission creep meets mis-management results in failure. CMM
Does anyone else have the problem of their local chapter endorsing development heavy candidates who play lose and fast with environmentally protective laws and ordinances?
I got my ballot this morning and am curious to know if anyone has any pitches/input on the candidates.
I can see this subreddit doesn't get much action but I figured I'd post anyway.
So many years ago now I decided that since I was making more money I wanted to start contributing to worthy causes. For me, someone who likes the outdoors, I decided that joining the Sierra Club would be the first place I started. So for about 20 bucks I joined and got a rather cheap duffle bag as a gift. What followed after that was a cascade of unwanted gifts that hasn't ended to this day.
Immediately after joining I was flooded with mail from environmental charities all the time. Many of them send me a brand new nickel in the mail, some send seeds, some send a sheet of return labels with my name and address. And I don't want any of it. Especially the sticky return labels. Not only that but the Sierra Club itself constantly sent me mailings urging me to give more. Even though I was upset with all this the second year I was doing pretty well financially so I gave more when I renewed. And still all the same junk mail kept pouring in. So when my renewal came up for year three they had actually upped my membership fee to the larger amount I had donated the previous year. This is something I certainly could have afforded but I had had enough at this point. I felt like they were trying to take advantage of me. And the sheer waste of resources and my time was unbelievable. I not only have to shred everything with my name on it but I have all these sticky return labels with my name and address that will get stuck in my shredder. Today I received another mailing and it's been several years since I stopped renewing my membership.
The Sierra Club has changed my view on charities for the worse. Between them, the Susan G Komen Foundation corruption, the never ending cashiers asking ma if I want to donate to the Jimmy Fund, and the Salvation army at my grocery store every December I'm done. I've become cold to charities and will now only donate when I'm not solicited and only if I'm positive I won't be added to any mailing lists.
