Youth v. Oil is advocating for the San Diego City Council to pass a resolution supporting the Campaign for a Safe and Health California and keeping SB1137, the state law passed in 2022 to prohibit new or modified oil and gas wells within 3,200 feet of homes, schools, daycare centers, parks, healthcare facilities, and businesses. 

This resolution is on the docket at the San Diego City Council Environment Committee meeting. Please help ensure the resolution passes and moves on to the full City Council. 

Please show your support for youth leaders:

  1. Attend the meeting – in-person if possible (you can also tune in to watch online).  While the meeting starts at 1 pm, we expect our item to begin around 2:00 pm so we’re asking folks to arrive by 1:30 pm if possible.  NOTE CHANGE IN TIME
  2. Submit written public comment ahead of the meeting (note: because we can have a limited number of speakers, we are prioritizing campaign youth to provide public comment at the meeting). 

 

Why does this matter? 

When the law passed in 2022, Big Oil spent tens of millions of dollars to put a statewide referendum on the November ballot to try to repeal the law and at minimum delaying it by 2 years. We want to make sure that San Diegans vote to keep the law in place, and want to get our cities on record in support. 

We will have a toolkit linked here soon to help you send in a public comment. Please make sure to register here so that any updates to this event will be emailed to you. 

How to get there

Take the Blue, Orange or Silver Trolley to Civic Center Station, or buses 2, 3, 7, 110, 901, 923, 929 or  992. If driving, you can park in the Evan V. Jones municipal parking garage (entrance is on 1st Ave near A Street).
