SPEAKER: Martha Klein

Martha Klein is the CT Sierra Club Chapter Chair and Communications Director. She has been an advocate for increased renewable energy and the prevention of worsening climate disruption in the state, by providing education to the public, legislators, and regulators; advocating for legislation; challenging industry; and organizing the public to bring about the changes needed. She is also the leader of the Beyond Gas Campaign, and also served a two-year term as delegate to the Council of Club Leaders.

As Chair, her goals are to develop the Chapter's conservation campaign activity, volunteer base and leadership capacity. Since 2014, Martha has worked on the transition away from fossil fuel dependence to a renewable energy economy, specifically by building a campaign against fracked gas, the fossil fuel whose use is being increased in our state. Martha is a leader of the campaign to Save Remington Woods, along with the Friends of Remington Woods, a CT Chapter Committee. 

Martha has 30 years’ experience as a Registered Nurse with an emphasis on public health, having worked in underserved communities in NYC, Boston and on a Lakota reservation. When not fighting pipelines or learning about preserving open space, Martha works part time doing private duty home care, serves on her town's Conservation Commission, enjoys hiking, skiing, swimming, and creating wildlife habitat on her property in Norfolk.
