CLCV Statement on Obama’s Expansion of California Coastal National Monument

Oakland, CA – In response to President Obama’s expansion of the California Coastal National Monument, California League of Conservation Voters CEO Sarah Rose issued the following statement:

“The expansion of the California Coastal National Monument is great news for our state. Our coast belongs to all Californians and preserving its scenic beauty and biodiversity is crucial for California’s climate and economic future. We thank President Obama for his conservation leadership, and all the local stakeholders and elected officials who made this expansion possible.

With the new presidential administration about to take office, it is crucial we act to make certain our magnificent landscapes and wildlife continue to belong to all of us now, and for generations to come.”

We believe that radical change is necessary and only by transforming our political system will we create the opportunity to take bold action on climate change. We elect and cultivate environmental champions, turn election victories into policy wins, hold our lawmakers accountable, and build political power for change. We inspire hope and action and fight for equity and justice for all Californians. We are in the business of changing what’s possible.
