Dear Governor Newsom–It’s your last chance to choose: our future or fossil fuels.

Dear California Governor Gavin Newsom,

We are Californians between the ages of 10 to 26. Many of us live in areas impacted by the fossil fuel industry and the climate emergency it has generated in California and around the world. We demand that you lay out your plan for California’s swift and just transition off fossil fuel production during your State of the State address.

Our Future or Fossil Fuels

As you prepare for your State of the State, we are counting on you to follow through for our future. That starts with these steps that you have the power to take as our Governor:

We need you to be brave and choose a side: our future or fossil fuels?
