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.
