Team Sierra & Sierra Club Response to COVID-19

As we all begin to deal with a global pandemic, I want to let you know how the Sierra Club is adapting and responding, so we can keep doing the important work of protecting our natural environment and fighting for a just, clean energy future. 

First, we’re prioritizing the health of our volunteers, activists, staff, and entire community. The COVID-19 pandemic is a social and economic justice issue, as well as a health crisis. Protecting our community is our number one priority, and we recognize that we have a social responsibility to be good actors in keeping others safe, too. 
This crisis shows how deeply we depend on one another to act for a greater common good. While social distancing may be necessary at this time, it is also increasingly necessary for us to come together to work through this crisis.

At Team Sierra, we’ve been working hard to build a community of people who are protecting the planet. Through these days and weeks of disruption, many people are finding solace in nature and we recognize the need to continue to keep our planet healthy as we work to do the same for ourselves and our communities. The money you’ve worked to raise through Team Sierra assures that staff and volunteer activists are able to continue to lobby for climate solutions. It supports Sierra Club’s initiatives to retire dirty coal plants and commit cities to renewable energy, and so much more. While much is put on hold for days, weeks, and months to come, the efforts to keep our planet safe keep going. Glaciers are still melting, air quality is still declining, and animals are still losing their habitats. You’ve played an integral part in supporting these efforts, and we cannot thank you enough. 

Please keep following us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram for your daily dose of inspiration, reliable information, and activism. You can also subscribe to our Daily Ray of Hope for uplifting and inspirational pictures and quotes.

Respuesta de Team Sierra y el Sierra Club al COVID-19

A medida que todos comenzamos a enfrentar esta pandemia global, quiero hacerte saber cómo el Sierra Club se está adaptando y respondiendo, para que podamos continuar haciendo el importante trabajo de proteger nuestro medio ambiente y luchar por un futuro más justo y con energía limpia.

Lo primero es la salud de nuestros voluntarios, activistas, personal y toda la comunidad. La pandemia de COVID-19 es un problema de justicia social y económica, así como una crisis de salud. Proteger a nuestra comunidad es nuestra prioridad número uno, y reconocemos que tenemos la responsabilidad social de ser buenos actores para mantener a otros seguros también.

Esta crisis demuestra cuán profundamente dependemos unos de otros para trabajar por un bien común mayor. Si bien el distanciamiento social puede ser necesario en este momento, también es cada vez más necesario que nos unamos para trabajar en esta crisis.

En Team Sierra, hemos estado trabajando duro para construir una comunidad de personas que protejan el planeta. A través de estos días y semanas de interrupción, muchas personas están encontrando consuelo en la naturaleza y reconocemos la necesidad de continuar manteniendo nuestro planeta saludable, mientras trabajamos para hacer lo mismo por nosotros y nuestras comunidades. El dinero que se ha recaudado a través del Team Sierra asegura que el personal y los activistas voluntarios puedan continuar presionando por soluciones climáticas, apoyando las iniciativas de Sierra Club para retirar las plantas de carbón que ensucian el aire, y comprometer a las ciudades a adoptar energías renovables, y mucho más. Si bien es mucho lo que se pone en espera durante días, semanas y meses, los esfuerzos para mantener nuestro planeta continúan. Los glaciares aún se están derritiendo, la calidad del aire sigue disminuyendo y los animales siguen perdiendo sus hábitats. Ustedes han desempeñado un papel integral en el apoyo a estos esfuerzos, y no tenemos cómo agradecerles lo suficiente.

Te invitamos a continuar con nosotros en Facebook, Twitter, o Instagram para darte tu cucharada diaria de inspiración, información confiable y activismo.
