Please come learn more about the key environmental issues, meet and greet your local legislators and their stance on important issues, meet other activists, and make a difference in the Valley of the Sun. We work closely with the Saguaro Group (North Maricopa County) and Grand Canyon Chapter Political Committee on overlaping candidates and issues.
The Grand Canyon Chapter Political Committee meets the first Monday of each month at 5:30PM in the Sierra Club's Phoenix office. All members are welcome to discuss legislative and federal issues, and act as advocates for conservation by taking political action. Contact John Sadowsky or Lynn DeMuth for details. Visit the Grand Canyon Political Page for Arizona political information.

We are proud of Michael's accomplishments and look forward to working with him .
