Organization from Wisconsin
According to the Wisconsin Democracy Campaign, the Sierra Club is a pro-environment membership organization with a major focus on lobbying. It has been making independent expenditures since the 1996 election cycle and helped pioneer the use of "issue" ads. The group supported Democratic Party candidates in the 2011 Wisconsin Senate recall elections.
