Sierra Forward: Our Mission and Vision

The Mission of Sierra Forward is to increase political, civic, and community engagement throughout California’s 4th Congressional District, and to assure representation that is responsible, effective, and accountable; and — looking to the future — representation that clearly reflects the values and needs of the district’s ten California foothill and mountain counties.

Our Vision is to work with like-minded groups and individuals throughout the district, regardless of party affiliation, to increase voters’ engagement in the political and policy making process and encourage civic leadership in support of the social, economic and environmental interests of the district.

Sierra Forward is an organization, based in and serving the citizens of ten California mountain counties (Alpine, Amador, Calaveras, El Dorado, Fresno, Madera, Mariposa, Nevada, Placer, and Tuolumne), that comprise the state’s 4th Congressional District. Its mission is to assure responsible, effective and accountable representation for the District, representation that clearly reflects the values, needs and aspirations of the people in the District. In cooperation with other groups and individuals who share its mission, Sierra Forward will accomplish its goals through strategies and tactics designed to educate, register, engage, motivate and turnout District voters in the 2018 Congressional election and beyond.
