There are crucial climate issues at stake right now and we need your help!
Commit California to 100% Clean Energy:
Senate Bill 100, which commits the Golden State to 100% clean electrical energy by 2045, is coming up for a vote in the Assembly Floor. This bill has massive support from the faith, public health, environmental justice and policy sectors. Send a letter to your Assembly Member urging an “AYE” vote!
Phase out oil and gas drilling in California:
Did you know that over 20,000 permits for oil and gas extraction have been issued just during the Brown administration? For decades, oil and gas drilling has devastated Creation and harmed some of the most vulnerable communities in our state – polluting the air and water and sickening thousands of people. Sign this petition and tell Governor Brown it’s time to phase out oil and gas drilling in California.
Tell Ford – Don’t Put Support for Clean Cars Standards in Reverse:
Six years ago, Ford Motor Company was part of a landmark agreement with the EPA, the state of California, and other major automakers to significantly improve fuel efficiency standards (54.5 mpg by 2025) and build cleaner cars. Now, it’s backing away from this commitment and indicating suport for the EPA’s proposal to weaken the Clean Cars Standards. Tell Ford to stop trying to undermine the standards and to build the clean cars consumers want and our climate demands.
