2017-05-31 Climate Chat: Can California Lead the Way on Climate Change?
May 31 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm

Can California Lead the Way on Climate Change?
A climate chat on the State’s ambitious Climate Action Plan, the debate about Carbon Pricing, and the struggle for Environmental Justice.

What: Climate Chat
When: Wed., May 31st at 6:30 PM
Where: Unitarian Church in Hillcrest, 4190 Front St. San Diego
Note: Park in the Church parking lot – we will provide passes so you can park there for free. 

RSVP NOW!

Our speaker will be Diane Takvorian, a member of the CA Air Resources Board (ARB) and Executive Director of Environmental Health Coalition (EHC). Under her leadership, EHC has been a leading advocate to protect our communities from toxic chemicals and to fight for environmental justice in the most impacted neighborhoods.

In his first 100 days, “45” and EPA director Pruitt have wreaked havoc on major environmental policies and regulations, undermining Obama’s Clean Power Plan and slashing the EPA budget. In defiance of Trump and company, will California be able to effectively implement policies to halt GHG emissions and accelerate the green energy revolution?

Participants will learn about CA’s Climate Action Plan and ARB’s proposed update, which is designed to reduce California’s GHG emissions by 50% by 2030. Diane will explain the benefits of carbon pricing and evaluate the current cap and trade program. She will highlight equitable solutions for renewable energy and transit that benefit all communities.  

More about Diane Takvorian: In 2008, Diane received the James Irvine Foundation Leadership Award for her creative and inspirational leadership. In 2010, Diane worked with Tom Steyer to defeat Prop 23- the oil industry initiative to repeal California’s bold climate action goals. In 2016, she was appointed to the powerful CA Air Resources Board by Assembly speaker Toni Atkins, where she continues to advocate for environmental justice.

Meet other San Diegans seeking solutions to the climate crisis at this interactive climate chat. Refreshments.

RSVP NOW!

Rally for Community Choice and 100% Clean Energy!
Jun 10 @ 11:00 am – 1:00 pm

Following President Trump's decision to pull out of the Paris Climate Agreement, it is more clear than ever that we need to take ambitious, concrete climate actions at the local level.

Join us on June 10th to call on Mayor Faulconer and our City Council Members to #ActOnClimate by moving forward with Community Choice Energy in order to achieve 100% clean energy (including the City of San Diego's Climate Action Plan goal of reaching 100% clean energy by 2035). 

Speakers include: San Diego Council Member Barbara Bry (District 1)

Together, we have an opportunity to drive our collective outrage into local action, and show the world a unified national response to Trump’s dangerous decision to reject the Paris agreement.

The action we need from every elected official is clear: Side with Paris. Stop building new fossil fuel projects. Move forward to 100% clean energy now. 

RSVP NOW using the green button (upper right). To help us organize, contact us.

Community Choice Energy Meeting & Rally
Jul 13 @ 9:15 am – 12:00 pm

The City of San Diego Sustainable Energy Advisory Board (SEAB) will release the long awaited Community Choice Energy (CCE) Feasibility Study soon. CCE is necessary for the City to reach its goal of 100% clean energy. It also provides competition, choice, and local green jobs.  

Join us to testify at the SEAB meeting, and for the rally and press conference we are co-hosting that precedes the meeting. Note: Please arrive by 9:15 am for the press conference. The meeting begins at 10 am. We will provide signs. 

San Diego families deserve the opportunity to benefit from a local community choice energy program. It's time to end the monopoly. It's time to put families first – It's time to put our community before shareholders and our freedom before profits. 

More than 60 cities, 9 counties and millions of Californians are already benefiting from CCE. Community groups, businesses, and individuals all across San Diego are demanding energy freedom.
