The September Issue: LA Resources, Forums, and Need-To-Know Info | 9/29/22
As we find ourselves in another 90-degree fall week, I am reminded of the very real and dangerous effects of climate change. On Friday, I was humbled to join the hundreds of young Angelenos who turned out for the Youth Climate Strike to demand that elected officials stop using the climate crisis as a talking point and commit to transparency and accountability in fighting this existential threat.
In our office, we have been working to already bring the fight for a healthier climate to Council Chambers — and keep us accountable to the goals set by LA’s Green New Deal. From ensuring our city’s municipal fleet is 100% electric, actively investing in transit and mobility improvements to better the city’s air quality, and requiring all new residential and commercial buildings in LA to be built so that they will achieve zero-carbon emissions, we are moving the needle on achieving a greener city for all.
But standing alongside these incredible young leaders on Friday, I am heartened by one thing: I know that we have fierce fighters holding me and everyone in elected government accountable for moving faster to our climate goals.
As we head into fall, we know it can be challenging to keep track and up to date on what you need to know now. This month has been full of important new resources, opportunities for input, upcoming event announcements, and more — we compiled them all below to make it easy.
Sending wishes for a peaceful weekend to all, and L’Shanah Tovah to those celebrating!
