One decision can change the future.

We urge you to consider the environment when you vote. Only by electing candidates who share our view on the importance of protecting the environment can we make our state the model for the rest of the nation.

Hawaiʻi Chapter Political Committee
Our political committee works at the local level (county councils, mayors, State legislators, governors, etc) to promote the election of environmentally sensitive candidates to public office by recommending endorsements to the Chapter Executive Committee and maintaining a relationship with those elected.

The Hawaiʻi Chapter and its four regional groups each have their own Political Committee, with representatives from each county on the Chapter Political Committee.

Capitol Watch
In order to give our Hawai‘i members a strong effective voice at the State Capitol, the Sierra Club of Hawaiʻi created Capitol Watch, a legislative advocacy program that monitors bills and alerts members so they can lobby the legislature, the administration, and state agencies to protect Hawaiʻi’s natural resources and improve the health and safety of Hawai‘i’s people.
