What does it take to change climate policy?

It requires an understanding of partner organizations, lawmakers and journalists– their motivations, concerns, and values. To work with them, we must earn their trust.

And that’s exactly what we’re doing.


With your support such as a one-time gift, or a monthly sustainer contribution, you help us continue to earn trust and gain momentum across CA like what happened last week. 


Articles, interviews and op-eds about our work poured in after the Los Angeles Times covered the recent report by climate experts on accelerating climate action timelines. This media coverage that we facilitated, plus the more than 1,000 endorsements of our Climate-Safe California campaign, elevates our influence when talking with key legislators about our policy agenda for a climate-safe future.


We cannot do this work without you. Become a monthly sustainer today!


As the California legislative season kicks into high gear, we are building powerful coalitions to get crucial climate legislation and regulations over the finish line. 

The trust we have gained helped win the California Public Utilities Commission allocation of $200 million for microgrids in frontline communities earlier this year. This hard-earned trust also propelled our priority state senate bills, SB 99 and 582, through key committees. 

We are building momentum and hitting critical milestones to achieve urgently needed and equitable, climate-safe policy solutions, thanks to you. 

The longer we wait to reach net-negative emissions, the more it will cost. The sooner we act, the greater the benefits for public health, our communities and our economy. 

Help us capitalize on the momentum we are building in Sacramento for climate-friendly policy breakthroughs. 


A one-time gift or a monthly sustainer contribution sustains our work.


We love a single gift made anytime and of any amount and we also love recurring gifts, so if a monthly recurring donation works for you, know that it allows us to plan and build the capacity we need to be most effective. Your gift today helps us to accelerate climate action; we will further catalyze our trailblazing efforts to ensure a vibrant, equitable, healthy and climate-safe future for all. Thank you!
