Come together as communities of color, youth, immigrants, workers and union members to shape a visionary San Francisco Green New Deal that will transform our city and set an example of what is possible for other cities around the country.

While San Francisco has adopted a series of ambitious climate goals, including all renewable energy by 2030 and net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, and we must ensure that these plans serve the needs of our communities.
As global climate chaos meets our local crisis of wealth disparity, an ambitious people’s agenda for climate justice and just transition catalyzing a San Francisco Green New Deal could address climate change alongside many of our city’s needs, from transit justice to green union jobs. With the city slated to release an updated Climate Action Plan in the next year and the Green New Deal concept capturing the nation’s attention, now is an ideal time to push an immigrant, communities of color and worker-led climate justice and just transition agenda in San Francisco.
This goals of this gathering are to bring together workers and community members to learn about climate justice and give feedback so that we can co-create a vision for a Green New Deal in San Francisco. Please bring any and all of your members who want to learn more about climate justice and share ideas about what a just, green, economy can look like!
