From Alameda to Yountville, we're saying "YES" to electric vehicles

To date, over 250 current and recent mayors, city council members and county supervisors from Oakland and Fresno to San Fernando and Chula Vista, have signed on to endorse Gov. Jerry Brown’s vision to place 1.5 million zero emission vehicles on California’s roads by 2025. By accelerating the deployment of clean vehicles, we can clean up our air, reduce global warming pollution, improve public health, save Californians money at the pump and stimulate economic growth.

You’re building support to save the bees.

Millions of bees are dying off, with alarming consequences for our environment and our food supply. In 2015, we mobilized grassroots support for protecting these vital pollinators. Thanks to your support, our national team and a coalition of beekeepers, farmers and others delivered more than 4 million petitions calling on the Obama administration to declare a ban on neonicotinoids, a class of bee-killing pesticides.

We're keeping California safe from fracking.

We have seen disastrous fracking operations rolling across the country, and now Big Oil wants to frack throughout California, putting our air, water and land at risk. Environment California members and allies helped bring together the coalition of Californians Against Fracking, and in 2013 more than 100,000 Californians called on the governor to protect our state and ban fracking. Thousands more called on the Coastal Commission to stop fracking off our coast.

We're standing up for state parks.

When Gov. Jerry Brown’s administration announced a short-sighted plan to close 70 state parks, we swung into action. By speaking directly with tens of thousands of Californians and building a strong coalition of business owners, environmental groups and local officials, we quickly sounded the alarm and mobilized people from all walks of life to save our parks.

We helped expand Yosemite.

In 2013, Environment California worked to protect a 1,600-acre wildlife corridor that connects Yosemite National Park to the Sierra National Forest. More than 10,000 Californians signed petitions, and the State Legislature unanimously passed a resolution urging Congress to expand Yosemite. In March, Environment California went to Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s office in D.C. to the deliver the petitions, and she sponsored a Yosemite expansion bill one month later.
