Now that we've kicked off the New Year, the
Sierra Club has turned its attention to the real Y2K
issue--the 2000 elections. With the presidential race
heating up and dozens of high-profile congressional
seats up for grabs, there will be a lot of excitement--accompanied
by a lot of
information and misinformation.
To sort through it all, the Club has launched its
Montana Environmental Voter Education Campaign (EVEC).
EVEC will endeavor to educate Sierra Club members and
the public-at-large on the environmental stances of
officials and candidates and on their voting records.
Armed with these profiles, the public can hold them
accountable for these positions and decide which
candidates best represent
their concern for the environment.
EVEC activities take many forms--which means
there are lots of ways for you to get involved! Working with Mary Wiper, volunteers
will write letter to newspapers, distribute postcards at
community events, conduct phone banks, and help with
publicity. Hundreds of volunteers are needed to ensure
that our elected officials and candidates understand our environmental priorities. (Mary Wiper, EVEC
