Minnesota's Sierra Club vs. particularly oppressive change in climate

by Jeremy Hooper

The Sierra Club North Star Chapter, a leading environmental organization in Minnesota, has adopted a resolution opposing the proposed marriage ban that will go before state voters in 2012:

"To achieve our mission of environmental protection and a sustainable future for our planet, we must attain social justice and human rights at home and around the globe,” said Margaret Levin, the state director of the Sierra Club North Star Chapter. “The Sierra Club North Star Chapter has a long history of working together to protect our communities and our planet. We do not tolerate injustice, and we will not stand by and allow our state constitution to be used as a means of dividing communities and harming families.”

Makes sense. While trees may be ripe for hugging, human beings are fit for loving. Both should be honored and respected as they naturally are.
