Our programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

100% Clean Energy

We fight for 100% clean energy to ensure that all communities in our region have access to clean energy sources. This initiative is driven by the goal of shaping our energy future, reducing emissions, and creating a just, climate-safe environment for generations to come.

Investing in local clean energy projects is imperative for our region to not only create jobs but also to cultivate a green economy. By championing initiatives within our communities, we can propel sustainable economic growth while simultaneously combating climate change.

Implementing Community Choice Energy Programs: The purpose of these programs is to empower communities with local control over their clean power sources. By offering equitable access and energy democracy, Community Choice Energy programs ensure that clean energy decisions are made in the best interest of the community, fostering inclusivity and sustainability.

To combat greenhouse gas emissions and promote healthier, more equitable communities, we're committed to making our neighborhoods bikeable and walkable. By designing streets with safe infrastructure for pedestrians and cyclists, we encourage more people to choose active transportation. This not only improves air quality but also enhances accessibility to essential amenities like schools, jobs, and parks. Through initiatives like affordable housing near amenities, we're reimagining our streets and neighborhoods for a sustainable future.

We advocate for a world-class transit system in San Diego, essential for our health, environment, and economic prosperity. With transportation as the primary source of greenhouse gas emissions in our region, a transformative transit network is crucial for a climate-safe future. By investing in an interconnected system of buses, trolleys, and commuter rail, we provide sustainable and efficient transit options for all.

Transportation intersects with economic, racial, and environmental justice. Historically marginalized communities have borne the brunt of pollution and economic neglect. To address these inequities, we call for a fast, frequent, and affordable transit system that fosters economic mobility and empowers transportation choices. Our vision is an inclusive transit system that benefits all San Diegans.

We're dedicated to building resilience so that every family can thrive in a changing climate. Climate-related disasters like wildfires, heatwaves, and flooding already impact communities, disproportionately affecting working-class communities of color. While we strive to reduce emissions, it's crucial to ensure everyone can prepare and adapt to climate stressors. Years of neglect have left marginalized communities with fewer resources to cope with extreme weather events.

Our advocacy focuses on equitable policies and programs to help cities adapt to climate challenges. Whether Black, brown, indigenous, or white, we all desire healthy, safe, and resilient communities where families can flourish.

Population(s) Served

We're dedicated to creating safe, healthy homes and buildings powered by clean electricity, devoid of indoor air pollution and methane gas. As the third-largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in our region, methane must be eliminated to achieve a zero-carbon future. Transitioning to all-electric appliances fueled by renewable energy like solar and wind is essential.

Electrification offers proven, equitable, efficient, and affordable alternatives, ensuring safer and healthier living environments for everyone. We need to prioritize the transition to all-electric buildings to build resilient, sustainable communities.
