Protect Minnesota! We need environmental leaders who will stand up for our state’s future.

Minnesota State Capitol

Electoral politics shape the landscape in which we work to protect our lands, waters and climate; but anti-environment majorities in our state legislature are attacking the natural legacy Minnesotans have fought so hard to protect.

So now it’s time for us to stand up for Minnesota! Get up to date on the issues we've faced this past year by reading our Legislative Scorecard, and see who the Sierra Club endorsed candidates are for 2012.

Finally, make sure to talk to your neighbors, friends, and family about why the environment matters to you – and vote on November 6!


The North Star Chapter's Political Committee is responsible for determining endorsements during the 2012 election cycle. Endorsements are a useful way for Sierra Club members and other environmentally-minded voters to identify candidates for office who have a high level of commitment to protecting Minnesota’s air, land and water.

On November 6, Minnesotans will be asked to vote on two proposed amendments to our state's constitution. The Sierra Club North Star Chapter opposes both amendments.

  • Vote NO on the amendment that would ban marriage for same-sex couples in Minnesota
  • Vote NO on the Voter Restriction Amendment
