Event Details

California’s controversial cap-and-trade program went into effect this year and is expected to generate tens of billions of dollars in new state revenues over the next decade. EJ and social equity advocates have the unique opportunity to channel a significant amount of these funds to help highly-polluted communities and to ensure the equitable implementation of climate change laws, such as SB 375. This panel will explore the controversy behind cap-and-trade program and the advocacy efforts at the state and regional levels to maximize benefits to disadvantaged communities.

Speaker: Supervisor John Gioia, District l, Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors

Moderator: Guillermo Mayer, Senior Staff Attorney at Public Advocates Inc.

Mari Rose Taruc, State Organizing Director for the Asian Pacific Environmental Network (APEN)

Marybelle Nzegwu, Staff Attorney on the Housing, Transit and Climate Justice team at Public Advocates Inc. 

Vien Truong, Director, Environmental Equity Program, The Greenlining Institute
