Review for Sierra Club, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have served as a volunteer for almost a year with the Oregon Beyond Coal Campaign. As this is my first venture as a public activist, I have been impressed with the excellent coaching, support, and encouragement I have received from the Club's staff. The staff is extremely capable and enthusiastic, and have the ability to pass on their enthusiasm. Beginning with the rally at the EPA hearing in Seattle last spring, each event has been very well planned and choreographed. It has been rewarding and fun to participate in this important campaign.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the fact that our target, Portland General Electric, has felt the pressure we have exerted, and has altered its targeted date to close the Boardman coal plant to 2020 (we feel they can do better, and will continue to press for a 20124 closure).

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The fact that we have been effective; the excitement of being at the spearhead of a growing local and national movement for clean, renewable energy; and the camaraderie that has grown among the Portland corps of volunteers.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Awesome! Smart, energetic, competent, reliable - and fun!

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

Probably move the country faster to clean renewables
