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!
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.
Our EJ Scorecard is the only report on how California's elected officials are addressing environmental issues that impact low-income communities and communities of color. The Agency Assessment includes EJ Principles for Policy Implementation, with an analysis of how state regulatory agencies can improve their commitment to and inclusion of environmental justice within policy implementation.
