Environmental Justice

Advancing environmental policies that are community-driven and protect access to clean air and water, particularly in California neighborhoods disproportionately affected by environmental pollution.

Access to affordable drinking water is a fundamental human right yet a major issue in California. No one should have to choose between clean water and their own basic human needs. No water shutoffs!
