We were excited to celebrate and award the title Climate Champion to three San Francisco Supervisors - Rafael Mandelman, Gordon Mar, and Myrna Melgar - in appreciation of their outstanding work with the Climate Justice and Environmental Justice community to fight climate change and protect our health and environment.
When: Friday, October 7, 2022, 1:30 - 2:30 pm
Where: Polk Street steps of City Hall, facing Civic Center Plaza
These Supervisors have introduced and supported legislation, resolutions, and have held hearings on many issues related to climate and environmental justice. They have been with us all along the way, pushing for support of the Department of the Environment (SFE) and the implementation and funding of our Climate Action Plan.
With this recognition, we let them know we remember their contributions and we can't wait to work with them in the future to fund and implement the Climate Action Plan.
