CEJA is shaping a bold vision for energy use and decision making in California to ensure that low-income families already burdened by pollution are not saddled with higher energy prices. Our communities deserve Energy Democracy to be at the table where decisions are made to protect the air they breathe from toxic sources, and to help save on energy bills. Read about our goals and energy policy priorities this legislative session.
On June 5th, voters in California resoundingly rejected Proposition 70, the most controversial proposition on the June primary ballot, that was part of a long-term effort by Big Oil to attack and undermine efforts to address climate change. EJ communities across the state mobilized their family, friends, and neighbors to vote down Proposition 70 because we needed to take a stand against corporate-controlled climate policy.
We are pleased to release our 2018 Environmental Justice Legislative Agenda featuring a range of bills that ensure safe and affordable drinking water, protect communities from toxic waste, improve air quality, promote equitable transportation, and limit offshore oil drilling.
