Legislative Team members meeting with Assembly member Rebecca Bauer-Kahan

Legislative Team

Keeping California a leader in climate legislation

The Legislative Team focuses on the Sacramento lawmakers who represent Contra Costa residents. We cultivate strong relationships with these state senators and assembly members so we can influence their votes on important legislation. And we get the word out to our fellow constituents when letters and phone calls are needed to convince lawmakers to vote the right way.

What We're Doing Now

We Demonstrated!

On Monday, June 26, 2023, our legislative team demonstrated outside State Senator Steve Glazer‘s office in support of AB579–electrifying school buses, and AB421–stopping powerful industries like oil, gas, and tobacco from overturning good laws. Never say activists can’t have fun!

Join us and a broad coalition to make lasting change

California is often mentioned as a leader in climate legislation, but the fossil fuel industry is powerful in our state, and it can buy a lot of influence. To fight back, the Legislative Team is working with a broad coalition of climate and environmental justice groups for equitable, bold climate solutions. Each legislative session, we work closely with our parent organization, 350 Bay Area Action, to identify key bills, research them, and track their progress through the legislature.

And we could use your help! You don’t need any experiencejust a willingness to learn about bill tracking and lobbying. Please get in touch to find out more.
