All Hands on Deck for the Climate

Member's Spotlight

Heat records are being broken, glaciers are melting, and the seas are rising. We have
reached a point where no matter what we do, we cannot avoid a very different climate
future. We must act now to prevent truly catastrophic consequences. But what can we
do? The most powerful action is everyone’s knowledgeable vote.

Together, members of the League of Women Voters of California are educating and
advocating in the fight against climate change – and influencing those votes.

The LWVC Climate Change Task Force is a group of over 300 League members across
California working on climate action. The Task Force has an ambitious agenda. It is now
forming state-wide teams to tackle a number of topics related to climate change. As a
member of the Task Force you can take climate action at the level that works for you.
The Task Force steering team sends periodic notifications on climate change issues,
events, and actions. It shares its work to make the whole much better than the parts.
The Climate Change Task Force is part of LWVC’s long history of support for actions to
fight climate change and to protect the public from preventable disasters.

In June 2019, the LWVC unanimously resolved to declare a climate emergency: We ... call upon the
LWVC Board, Action Committee and local Leagues to advocate for ‘Climate Emergency
Declarations’ and urgent relevant action by state, county, and local governments.

It is time for all hands on deck in this climate emergency and you can make a difference.
Join the LWVC crew at whatever level works for you. Check us out online at
