Dear Sierra Club Member,
The difference between a pro-environment Congress and four more years of
polluter control of Washington is in your hands.
All that we care about is at stake in this election -- your vote this
November has never been more vitally important. And we need thousands
more like you.
We are calling on all committed environmentalists -- folks like yourself,
who know how much is at stake -- to rally to the cause, by supporting the
Sierra Club Political Committee.
You can rush your donation to the front lines this minute using our
donations page here.
Anti-environmental special interest contributors are flooding candidates
and polluter PACs with cash. Developers, logging operations, Big Oil and
other anti-environment interests are willing to funnel as much money as
it will take to try and help their friends this November.
We have set an emergency goal of $50,000 in donations to be raised by
Labor Day. These contributions will go to support pro-conservation
candidates and implement crucial "get-out-the-vote" and other
election-related activities. Without an emergency influx of cash, key
environmental wins this November could slip away.
I have sent you a postal letter laying out our plans in greater detail.
Please watch for it. Meanwhile, I wanted to send you this email to give
you some highlights of the situation.
There has never been a time when your action was needed more -- the
future of our environment depends on changing the leadership in
Washington this year.
In the past, you’ve generously contributed to our political efforts. Your
donations have made a difference, and I thank you for it. Quite frankly,
not everyone understands the stakes this year and is willing to make a
personal financial commitment. As one of those rare individuals, you are
critical to our plans to wrest control of the House and Senate from
Of course, we can never hope to match the tens of millions of dollars
that the industrial special interests are throwing to their candidates.
But with strategic targeting of our resources we can -- and we will --
make a difference.
We’ve used this strategy in the past, and it has worked. During the 2002
election cycle, we won 81% of the races in which we made contributions to
particular candidates. The Sierra Club Political Committee made 216 House
and Senate endorsements, reached 1.7 million voters and sent 35 staff
members to work on campaigns.
This year, if we have your support, we will increase our efforts and
reach even more voters. We will work to elect pro-environmental
candidates by going door-to-door and talking to the people about what’s
Election Day will soon be here. And for your support to have its maximum
effect, we need to hear back from you very soon.
P.S. Please send your support right away. Your money will be put to
immediate and effective use in our battle to gain the ground we urgently
need in Congress.
