Coalition Background

The California Green New Deal Coalition is a coalition of over 25 organizations that represent communities of color, urban and rural neighborhoods, workers, immigrants, environmentalists, and people across California standing up for racial justice, good jobs, environmental justice, and a regenerative economy that works for all of us.  

Our purpose is to build collaborative political power for a California Green New Deal that reflects the needs, visions, and voices of frontline communities. We identify and prioritize community-based solutions that address the climate crisis, build community power, and advocate for those solutions using our superpower—grassroots organizing and telling stories about our intersecting issues that change hearts and minds. 

We are fighting for a Green New Deal for California that supports the communities hit hardest by the combined crises of climate change, the COVID-19 pandemic, economic inequality, and white supremacy, and invests in a future where we all can thrive. In 2021-2022, we will expand our coalition and support the passage of key pieces of legislation through community power building bolstered by stories that change hearts and minds.
