Review for Sierra Club, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

We are engaged in a Beyond Coal campaign in Oregon. We have two knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff members who have recruited a large number of volunteers who have turned out for monthly meetings and various campaign events like phonebanking, tabling, and rallies. Our campaign has been effective in getting Portland General Electric to scale back the shutdown schedule for their coal plant. We have also been effective in getting the Northwest Power & Conservation Council to consider conservation in their next plan.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Ways to make it better...

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

I love volunteering or the Sierra Club.
