The climate crisis is here and now for communities in San Jose, California.

Just over the past year, residents of San Jose were hit by unhealthy smoke and air pollution from fires, damage from unprecedented flooding, record high temperatures, heat-induced power outages, and extreme drought. And these extreme weather events will only get worse if left unchecked.

In fact, scientists project that sea levels could rise 12 inches in the Bay Area as early as 2030.

And historically underserved communities are hit hardest by the impacts of climate change and the burden of pollution. Black, brown, and Asian American communities in San Jose already suffer from above average asthma rates, greater exposure to extreme heat and air pollution, and higher energy costs.

Thankfully, the San Jose City Council is recognizing the urgency of these compounding crises and is taking BOLD action. On November 8, city council members will vote on an important resolution which would slash climate-busting emissions in the city.
