Ensuring Climate Justice & A Green Energy System
The world is facing a cataclysmic climate catastrophe. The damage from climate change isn’t in the future, it’s here now. People in Southern California have seen this firsthand in the unprecedented frequency of severe droughts, elevated heat, and severe fires.
Given Donald Trump’s eagerness to eliminate critical environmental protections and double down on dirty fuels, the future of the planet is in the hands of the states.
That’s why in the Assembly, Reggie has worked to defend our environment and ensure that everyone, no matter your income, has an opportunity to experience California’s green economy. In Sacramento, Reggie championed investing hundreds of millions in low-income communities to fight climate change and advocated to pass a law that ensures a 100% renewable energy in California by 2045.
Reggie knows more needs to be done to accelerate California’s transition to clean, renewable energy in a way that empowers working class communities of color, which he will continue to fight for both locally and on the state level if re-elected.
