On October 2, 2014 environmental justice advocates, community members, faith leaders, nurses and elected officials joined together in a forum at the Episcopal Church of Saint Andrew and Matthew on the environmental justice public health crisis impacting communities across the country.
"We support the right to a clean and healthful environment for all people"
Environmental Justice is the link between the environment and social justice to resolve the disproportionate distribution of environmental risk (including negative health, social and economic effects) on communities. At the Sierra Club, we explore the linkages between environmental quality and social justice to promote dialogue, increased understanding and appropriate action.

People's Climate March, Sunday 9/21/2014
The People's Climate March was BY FAR the largest climate action ever--The New York City march alone, which over 250 Delawareans participated in, had over 400,000 people in attendance; and that it was the most diverse climate action ever--maybe one of the most diverse actions period. From labor unionists to environmentalist and scientists to religious leaders, we sent a message loud and clear that climate change can no longer be seen as just an environmental issue, it's an everyone issue.
