Sign the Petition: Tell California Leaders It's Time for Action!

Millions of Californians live near hazardous oil and gas wells, worsening health problems like preterm birth, asthma, and cancer. Low-income communities are exposed to dangerous pollution from industrial trucks driving through their neighborhoods. And farming communities are suffering health impacts from toxic pesticides.

We can do better. That's why NRDC is working in California to build a healthier and more equitable future for all — a future where communities have safe and affordable access to water, are free from pollution, and get their power from clean energy. It also means protecting California's beloved open spaces and natural resources for future generations and visitors to enjoy.

As the COVID-19 crisis continues, California must stay especially vigilant about enacting the strongest possible environmental and public health protections to keep our water and air safe and our communities healthy.

Sign the petition to call on state leaders to build a healthier and more equitable California for communities by safeguarding our environment, water, air and land.

SPEAK UP FOR A HEALTHY AND EQUITABLE CALIFORNIA

Dear CA state leaders:

California is home to nearly 40 million residents — people who need affordable and clean water, air, transportation, housing, and food. But in order to ensure a healthy California, we need our policies to work for everyone.

Today, that's not the case. Black, brown, and Indigenous communities are disproportionately impacted by dangerous pollution and the effects of the climate crisis.

We can do better. We must do better.

Please stay vigilant about putting in place the strongest possible public health protections to ensure all communities have access to safe water and air and a healthy environment.
