The campaign kicked off with a press conference featuring Mayor Karen Bass, Tavis Smiley, Supervisor Holly J. Mitchell and key leadership from local, regional, and statewide public agencies like LADWP, Metro, Caltrans, and the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. During the press event, Smiley and other speakers highlighted how climate justice is deeply connected to Dr. King’s legacy of fighting for racial and economic justice, citing how environmental pollution and adverse weather events impact communities of color first and worst.

Why Climate Justice?

Climate justice is at the intersection of human and civil rights, as well as environmental and social justice.
