Join UUJMCA in Sacramento to demand an end to California's dependence on fossil fuel production!
Join UUJMCA as we show our support to end California's dependence on fossil fuels! Organized by Last Chance Alliance and their partners, Californians across the state will come to Sacramento to calling on Governor Newsom to address the following three actions in his State of the State address:
1) Stop new fossil fuel projects: Lead by issuing no new permits for oil and gas extraction, fossil fuel infrastructure, or petrochemical projects in California.
2) Drop existing oil production: Set a national and global precedent by becoming the first oil- producing state to announce a phase-out of existing production in line with the Paris climate goals, with a just and equitable transition that protects workers, communities and economies.
3) Roll out setback limits: Begin by first phasing out oil production in places that are suffering most from the impacts of fossil fuel extraction — by creating a 2,500-foot health-and-safety buffer zone between fossil-fuel infrastructure and homes, schools and other sensitive sites.

We can all do more: we can conserve grey water for other uses, we can shorten our showers, we can install water saving nozzles and high-efficiency appliances. We need to do as much as we can as individuals, congregations and communities to reduce our unnecessary use of water.
And industry can do more, too. The mandatory restrictions imposed are only on residential consumers -- they exempt big ag, the fracking industry and water bottling companies. These policies put profits over people and go against our UU values. Stay tuned for next steps...
There has been an on-going controversy surrounding the Bay Delta Conservation Plan (BDCP). Since December 13, 2013, this plan has been under-going public scrutiny; alongside Governor Jerry Brown, who endorses it. The plan claims that the “BDCP would secure California’s water supply by building new water delivery infrastructure and operating the system to improve the ecological health of the Delta”, so as to transport water across the state.
Human Agenda is a non-profit organization that reaches out to the Central California community, in an attempt to enlighten people about the injustices that migrant workers face on a daily basis. This organization is lead by Executive Director, Richard Hobbs; who is well known for his activism work, as well as his career as an immigration attorney; and Ann Lopez, the Director of the Center for Farmworker Families. On July 27th, The UUJMCA interns had the opportunity to attend one of the Human Agenda “Farmworker Reality Tours”. Here we met with migrant workers, and listened to their stories.
