Sierra Club Launches Voter Education Campaign

        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 Organizer)
