CIPL is holding “virtual” legislative meetings with people of faith and conscience on June 21 & 22, and you are invited! We’ll be urging the passage of laws centered on climate justice and a swifter transition to clean energy. All voices are needed with a special call out to those in the Central Valley, Inland Empire, San Diego, or Orange County. Fill out this short info form to tell us you’re interested.
The most recent United Nations climate report described the current moment as “code red for humanity. “ It states that global carbon emissions must peak by 2025 and fall quickly by 2030, to avoid devastating climate impacts. California has been responding, and there are important bills pending before the legislature on EVs, plastic waste reduction, climate resiliency, extreme heat and more.
Our priority legislation: SB 54 (Allen) – reduction of single-use plastics; SB 1482 – installation of EV charging for every parking space at new multifamily dwellings; SB 1486 – closure of Aliso Canyon Storage facility by 2027; AB 30 – Access to Nature expanding outdoor educational opportunities for all; AB 2076 – establish the Extreme Heat and Community Resilience Program; and and AB 2649 – the Natural Carbon Sequestration and Resilience Act of 2022. But your support is needed to push these bills across the finish line!
When: Tuesday and Wednesday, June 21 and 22
Time: TBD – each advocate will join a 30-minute Senate and Assembly meeting, to be scheduled by mid-June
Where: Online via Zoom!
How: Fill out this form to show us your interest
All advocates will join an Advocacy Training and Info Event on June 16, 10:00am.
CIPL and faith advocates have been a part of state climate advocacy for 20 years, and 2022 is a defining year on climate action. Thank you for all you do to create a better world, now, and for future generations!
P.S. Save the Date: We hope to be back walking the halls of the Sacramento Capitol Wednesday, August 17!
