Tell Gavin Newsom that We Need a Climate Justice Champion in the U.S. Senate

With Kamala Harris becoming our next Vice President, California is losing an environmental justice champion in the Senate. Now, Governor Newsom is responsible for appointing a new senator to her seat. We don’t know when exactly the Governor will make his decision but we know it will be soon.

Call Governor Newsom today and tell him we need a climate justice champion in the U.S. Senate.

Wildfires and other climate-related disasters will only continue to get worse. We need to send a bold leader with a strong environmental record to the US Senate now. This person’s actions in the next few years will make a big difference in our climate future.

A senator who puts the health of people over the profits of corporations can help make sure all Californians have access to clean air and water, mitigate fire danger with informed federal forest management, build a stronger economic future with more green jobs, and ensure racial justice and equity are at the core of any climate policy.

Our window of opportunity is closing. Governor Newsom needs to know the urgency Californians feel on the climate crisis.

The companies who stand to profit from a weak stance on climate won’t hesitate to make their opinion known. It’s up to us to make sure the Governor hears from voters. Don’t delay - click to call and tell Governor Newsom to appoint a climate justice champion to the Senate.

In solidarity,
