SubjectGive Us a Environmental Justice Advisory Committee NOW

Hello my name is jessie parks a first generation black third year public policy major at The university of California riverside. Through my first quarter as a transfer student I have expanded upon the prior knowledge I have learned volunteering and interning at the sierra club, meaning I know the importance of adopting a environmental justice advisory committee just as we have at UCR where we are able to examine and identify the solutions to take the much need actions to a just transition. Further more with the inland empire being riddled with pollution as an inland port the the time for comprehensive change is inparative! We can’t allow shortcuts in the development of this carb scooping plan! I love connecting with the planet and social and mental wellness that are all inter connected through our community. CCS is a fossil fuel greenwashing tool that will extend the life of polluting oil and gas in California.

 You all have to ability to change the lives of my friends and family for the better and that starts by establishing an environmental justice advisory community. I urge the Board to continue listening to the voices and realities of frontline Californians. As this agency turns to other regulatory processes and to implement this scoping plan, we hope to see A permanent Environmental Justice Advisory Committee for implementation of the Scoping Plan. This year’s Scoping Plan shows real leadership, and that would not have been possible without the tireless efforts of the. California’s frontline communities should be centered in Scoping Plan implementation to make sure that working-class communities of color benefit from the clean energy transition, and the best way to do that is to make sure we have a seat at the table via a permanent EJAC.



Thank you!
