“Guardians of Nature” Benefit for the Sierra Club Loma Prieta Chapter is back. Raise a glass of wine with your friends as we celebrate our extraordinary community.

Our inspiring speaker is Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune, our leader for the past five years. Michael has dedicated over two decades of his life fighting for a healthy planet. Under his leadership, Sierra Club has grown to more than two million supporters, and its Beyond Coal campaign has been recognized as one of the most effective in environmental history. In 2014 he led Sierra Club at the People’s Climate March, the largest worldwide protest against climate disruption. He is also the first Sierra Club executive director to be arrested for civil disobedience. He was arrested while protesting Keystone XL Pipeline at the White House in 2013.  

Santa Clara County Supervisor Joe Simitian will guide the afternoon as our Master of Ceremonies.
