Sacramento, CA | January 15, 2020 – Today, the California Environmental Justice Alliance Action released their 2020 Primary Election Environmental Justice Voter Guide. The guide recommends eight women of color – all environmental justice champions – for seats in the Assembly, state Senate and US House. More information on the candidates, as well as the recommended YES vote on Proposition 13, is available at www.ceja-action.org/voterguide..
Katie Valenzuela, CEJA’s Political and Policy Director, stated: “This is a pivotal moment for environmental justice communities. This voter guide builds on the strong foundation of our statewide advocacy by enumerating environmental justice principles – in order to set clear expectations for elected officials in California. We can pass strong policy only when we have strong allies in elected office. We hope to see the field of EJ Champions grow.”Read more
