Clean, affordable solar power is delivering health and economic benefits across California, and we need to ensure that those benefits are felt by all. California has some of the most aggressive climate and energy goals in the nation and this year we are proud to sponsor two bills, AB 523 & SB 366 that can put us on track to meet those goals with equity at the center!
California must stay committed to solutions that will reduce the high levels of air pollution in toxic hotspots and most effectively reduce climate change in our state. CEJA is working to keep equity and environmental justice at the center of the current debates on climate change to ensure our communities are not left behind. Read more about the environmental justice outcomes we want to see from any carbon pricing legislation this year.
CEJA’s 2017 Environmental Justice Legislative Agenda features a diverse set of bills that will address climate change, promote equitable transportation planning and funding, ensure safe and affordable drinking water for all communities, require oil refineries to install air monitoring systems, fight for affordable housing, and defund the construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline.
