Climate change is impacting all of California, but hits low-income communities and communities of color first and worst. The next phase California’s climate leadership and innovation depends on placing environmental justice principles at the core of climate policy to ensure we are addressing critical air quality issues related to cap & trade in EJ communities.

In order to transform our state's most overburdened and under-resourced communities, the TCC guidelines must be set up to achieve success. We are working with our members to advocate for a strong, transparent, and community-led process and recently released a report on our community vision and principles. With a strong community-led vision at the heart of the TCC program, we can begin to see innovative transformation in EJ communities.
