Amber is the first of our ten Minnesota Sierrans we hope to highlight - with the help of our volunteers we've been able to film part of her story, but we need your support to tell her story and the story of more of our members:
Amber started volunteering with the Sierra Club North Star Chapter in 2011 as a summer intern. Building on her interest in climate change and renewable energy, she began working on the Beyond Coal Campaign and petitioning for the Sierra Club’s Mercury Postcards. She also helped organize some of the Clean Energy Tours in Minnesota, highlighting cutting-edge, renewable energy projects across the state.
With a background in Urban Planning and Development, Amber was involved in the North Star’s Land Use and Transportation Committee, especially with their largest event, the annual Conference on Wheels. The 2011 Conference (Tour de Minneapolis) focused on urban cycling issues and opportunities. With Amber’s help, about 150 participants gained a better understanding of Minneapolis bicycle infrastructure strengths and weaknesses, with an action to advocate for more bike lanes and safer options for everyone through Complete Streets.
Amber further devotes her time to the North Star Chapter through a variety of tabling events, spreading the Sierra Club’s message and actions to different audiences – from bloggers at the Netroots Nation Conference to conservationists at the MN350 event. She has also tabled at the Minnesota State Fair, helping collect over 3,500 postcards supporting renewable resources and clean energy jobs. Now, those many postcards are being processed into the Sierra Club database, and Amber has been integral in completing this large task. Present at almost all of the Data Entry events, she has even co-hosted a couple on her own to get the job done.
Amber is one of the many stellar volunteers at the Sierra Club North Star Chapter - help us tell the stories of more of our volunteers and members by supporting our Kickstarter project!
