1% for Climate Equity
This Wednesday, April 14, at 1 pm at the Budget and Appropriations Committee hearing, you have the opportunity to speak up for climate funding! The good news is SF has $634 million in stimulus funding coming to build back better!
The Board of Supervisors unanimously passed a declaration of Climate Emergency two years ago and the Department of Environment is finalizing a significant update to the Climate Action Plan. But now that the low-hanging fruit has been harvested, San Francisco needs to take more aggressive, systemic action, and it will need significant funding to do so.
Tell San Francisco officials why you feel it's necessary to set aside stimulus funding -- we’re asking for $136 million out of the $634 million coming -- in order to begin to meet the urgent, life-threatening challenges of climate change. Let them know why fully funding equitable climate emergency action matters to you.

We hold regular constituent meetings with members of the Board of Supervisors, the Department of the Environment, and the Mayor’s office to help keep them on track to meet the demands of the Climate Emergency.
We aim to support affected communities and concerned citizens from all parts of San Francisco in making their voices heard on climate issues by scheduling constituent meetings, and by alerting our network of members and allies about opportunities to contribute to task forces, give public comment at committee hearings, and more.
