  • Personal Reflections on Race in the Climate Movement, Part 1

    As a team of people of color in the climate movement, the ClimatePlan team is cognizant of the way that race and ethnicity impacts our work. Oftentimes, during team meetings, we are discussing how to handle microaggressions, how it feels to be the only POC in the room. After the recent comment from some LA City Councilmembers, we felt obligated to say something, but exasperated that we had to. We settled on giving each team member space to share their personal experience about subtle and not so subtle ways our identities are challenged in the climate movement.  We invite you to read this series with an open mind and open heart.

    Clean Air Day 2022 - ClimatePlan's Committment

    ClimatePlan is excited to join the Coalition for Clean Air and partners across California in celebrating Clean Air Day! With our statewide focus on the intersection of climate, public health, and equity, ClimatePlan's commitment to clean air is as intrinsic as the air we breathe.

    Beyond the policies and solutions we work to advance, preserving clean air is part of our daily operations. With our staff made up of a team distributed across the state's regions, ClimatePlan has been working primarily remotely and saving transportation emissions long before it became necessary because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Keep reading for more about how each of our team members interact with clean air and the environment around us!

  • Webinar Alert- Local Ballot Measures: The Future of CA Climate Policy?

    ClimatePlan is excited to announce our next webinar, “Local Ballot Measures: The Future of CA Climate Policy?”. It will be next Tuesday, July 26th, at 4 pm; click here to register.

    This webinar is part of our decolonizing transportation funding campaign. The campaign aims to increase transparency and access regarding transportation decision-making, policies, and funding. Read more about the campaign here. Our most recent effort was a report card that graded ten state transportation funding programs against ten criteria important to the ClimatePlan network. 

    Now we want to zoom into the local level. Specifically, we want to explore ballot measures and local option sales tax (LOSTs). LOSTs are a common source of local transportation funding.

    Join us to learn how advocates on the ground across CA are mobilizing around current local ballot measures.

    Update: Watch the webinar recording here:

    The New ClimatePlan Team

    Over the last year there have been many changes at ClimatePlan. While operating with a decreased capacity, ClimatePlan has been able to continue advocating for equitable climate solutions that protect our health, communities, and environment. On the other hand, we have been spreading ourselves thin to get it done. That makes this announcement so exciting - the ClimatePlan team has doubled in size! 

    Stay tuned for more updates on how the ClimatePlan team will be dividing the work. In the meantime feel free to reach out and say hello.

    Meet the new ClimatePlan team!
