Jovanka Beckles Urges Action on Sierra Club - Supported Legislation

When the Sierra Club tells me I need to act, I take it very seriously — because they know how our environment can be endangered by bad laws. The Sierra Club has endorsed my candidacy for AD 15 and we believe in collaboration.

I hope you will follow their suggestions too!

They want us to contact Tony Thurmond at (916) 319-2015 now and urge support on Senate Bills 834, 1014, 1260 and 1335.

We need to say: YES to SB 834, to stop new offshore oil drilling in federal waters off of California; YES to SB1014 help cut tailpipe pollution from vehicles used by transportation network companies (TNCs) such as Uber and Lyft; YES to SB 1260 to authorize federal, state and local agencies to collaborate on forestry issues; YES to SB 1335 to phase out single-use plastic food packaging at state facilities.

Leave a phone message if you get a tape. Every voice counts!

Together we can save our planet! It’s not even a choice!


Contact Nicole Valentino at or (510) 621-7566, and for more information.
