CEJA Action is proud to release our 2020 Environmental Justice Voter Guide!
With the most important election of our lifetimes fast approaching, now is the time for voters of color to take the lead by electing proven social and environmental justice champions. CEJA Action is endorsing 14 candidates for State Assembly, State Senate and U.S. Congress – and a big YES vote on Propositions 15, 16, 17, 18, 21 and 23 to strengthen civil rights and reinvest billions in environmental justice communities across the state.
The COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting economic recession have pulled families and communities into a state of crisis. As we confront the triple crises of worsening wildfires as a result of climate change, a health pandemic, and recession – impacting low-income communities, and people of color, first and worst – the need for EJ champions is stronger than ever. We need to vote for true representatives who will stand with communities and demand environmental solutions that achieve racial, social and economic justice for all Californians.
CEJA Action is the only statewide, people of color-led alliance with deep expertise on environmental and climate justice issues faced by communities on the frontline of long-term pollution, systemic racism and regulatory negligence. We are the only alliance that builds the political power for environmental justice communities with strong infrastructure focused on mobilizing voters on candidate races. Our Voter Guide reflects our Alliance’s deep-rooted community organizing – and we’ve endorsed candidates who will advance critical policies to improve the health and quality of life for communities of color.
This guide is for YOU: a California voter who is impacted by and cares deeply about racial, economic and environmental injustice and believes that those living in environmental justice communities must shape the solutions we need.
