The fossil fuel industry wants to eviscerate California’s climate change and clean energy policies by weakening the voice and influence of the communities that shoulder the worst pollution. In advance of the June 2018 primary election, California environmental justice advocates found themselves on the defensive, having to fight off Proposition 70--a ballot initiative backed by corporate polluters and fossil fuel moneyed politicians. If passed, Prop 70 would have made it less likely for proceeds from California’s climate investments program to directly benefit low-income families and communities of color. Fortunately, California voters defeated Prop 70, with more than 60 percent voting “no.” California’s frontline communities, the individuals who are most impacted by climate change, were instrumental in resoundingly defeating this measure. After the election, California Environmental Justice Alliance Action (CEJA Action) wanted to both spread the news about this inspiring victory and lay the groundwork for future wins.
