Legislative Program

We educate and mobiize for stronger climate policies at the state Legislture while working with local regional and state elected officials to:
  • A just transition away from ALL fossil fuels and to clean energy
  • Zero emissions transportation and decarbonized (electric) bldgs
  • A strong foundation of climate justice in state climate policies, and more

The 2020 Legislative session opened on January 6

and runs through Sept 30, 2020.  This is also a critical election year in which we can elect stronger climate champions.  Our legislative committee runs on a strong and creative group volunteers to indentify the key bills we will work on and devises communciation and action tools to get lots of people involved.  We work with dozens of partner groups – sharing our experise on current blls, where they are on the process and how to take action. On key bills we join coalitions to build persuasive efforts for strong change. To stand up to the power of vested interests/business as usual we can push for the climate solutions we need —100% clean energy and ending fossil fuel power in Sacramento.
