The California Environmental Justice Coalition invites everyone working for environmental and climate justice to come to Sacramento for a strategy meeting and day of action.
- Sunday, August 21, 2016: The statewide conference/strategy meeting will include strategy sessions and trainings to build the knowledge and capacity of grassroots groups.
- Monday, August 22, 2016: We will visit legislators and other officials at the Capitol to speak to them about our issues and proposed legislation. Then we will take action for environmental and climate justice.
CEJC member organizations may apply for travel scholarships, but as these funds are limited they will be awarded on a needs basis and first come first served.
The California Environmental Justice Coalition was founded in November 2014 in Kettleman City at a gathering of 200 activists from 50 grassroots organizations from urban, rural, and indigenous communities across the state. Grassroots groups that are in solidarity with the CEJC Mission Statement are invited to join!
CEJC MISSION STATEMENT:

Led by people of color and low-income communities, CEJC is a broad, inclusive, grassroots of small and large groups uniting urban, rural and indigenous communities in resistance against environmental racism and injustice, and committed to environmental, social, and economic justice.
