SubjectInland Empire Resident Public Comment for CARB Scoping Plan

Good afternoon, my name is Xavina Walbert & I'm proud to say that I'm the first in my family to attend college from the University of Redlands, double majoring in Public Policy & Economics. I am pursuing these degrees to empower myself with EJ knowledge to advocate for my community, as I was born & raised in the Inland Empire, the nation's Goods Movement hub. The Inland Empire has seen generations of residents exposed to the nation's worst air quality & it's damaging health affects. Environmental justice communities like the Inland Empire deserve better from CARB. This Scoping Plan needs to prioritize real change over status quo & phase out natural gas & oil extraction by 2035, phase out oil refineries by 2045, & more investment in clean public & private transportation. As the 5th largest economy in the world & a state larger than some countries, California is being looked at by not only this nation, but also the world as Leaders of Change. Therefore, CA needs to set the example for this nation & the world that Frontline, EJ communities like mine, the Inland Empire, have a right to clean air, healthy lungs, & a clean California. Thank you for your time.
