C.L.I.C.K. for Justice and Equality is an agent of change alerting our social community of injustices and inequalities among the underserved, disadvantaged, and disenfranchised individual or group. A disadvantaged or disenfranchised person or group is anyone who is socially, culturally, and politically deprived of or oppressed from life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Make or break
2014: Make or break year for wild spaces, wildlife - and the planet itself.
The New Year will be here before you know it... will you be ready to win?
Defending scenic shores from drilling. Protecting tranquil lakes from coal sludge. Guarding awe-inspiring mountain ranges from dynamite blasts. Saving ancient trees and stunning forests.
I could go on, but here is the short version: As 2013 draws to a close, oil and gas drilling and mining interests have their sights set on some of our nation's most iconic wild places.
Worst of all is the Keystone XL pipeline. Building this toxic fuel funnel would be the single worst disaster for our environment in our recent history. Not only would it intensify man-made climate change, it would devastate wild spaces and threaten wildlife - wolves in Canada are already being hunted by air and brutally poisoned to make way for a leaky pipeline of tar sands sludge.
And the Obama administration could make a yay or nay decision on Keystone XL in the first months of 2014.
Sierra Club members - people who care about the environment just like you do - they do it all. And facing a threat like the habitat-destroying Keystone XL pipeline, they have never been more important.
Most importantly, as a Sierra Club member you'll also be part of big wins on fights that matter. This year alone, we generated hundreds of thousands of letters to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to save gray wolves. We confronted gas companies with dozens of local fracking campaigns. We stood proud in defense of clean energy as we marched and spoke out and kept the pressure on President Obama over Keystone.
