The Adam Alabarca Young Activist Award commemorates Adam Alabarca’s dedication to the protection of the environment and recognizes the efforts of an individual who has similarly furthered the cause. The Sierra Club and the Portland community lost one of our most enthusiastic, energetic and compassionate members with the passing of Adam Alabarca in a tragic automobile accident. Adam turned his seemingly endless energies into some of his favorite issues, including livable communities, the fostering of sustainable activities and electing pro-environment officials. This annual award honors the work of someone who shares Adam’s vision for Oregon, and who shows the promise of being an environmental leader for years to come.
