Candidate Forum – 53rd Congressional District

The event — hosted by San Diego 350, the Sunrise Movement San Diego and six other organizations — gave candidates the opportunity to engage with more than 100 residents and pitch their ideas for reducing the use of fossil fuels, promoting green jobs, and bringing environmental justice to underserved communities.”

There were several areas in which all five candidates were in agreement, such as refusing to accept campaign contributions from fossil-fuel industries and corporate PACs, strengthening environmental protections and supporting the Green New Deal, a wide-ranging resolution aimed at wiping out greenhouse emissions by 2030 while creating new jobs.

However, candidates varied when it came to offering concrete proposals for how they would tackle climate change and other environmental issues.
