Now, more than ever, we need all our elected representatives to prioritize climate solutions, and environmentally and socially just policies. These include: replacing fossil fuels with clean energy; creating resilient, healthy communities with affordable, energy efficient housing; promoting walkable and bikeable neighborhoods; and pushing for a just transition to good green jobs.

The elected officials listed here are individuals who are dedicated to real climate action. Each one has been designated or endorsed as a “climate champion” by one or more prominent Bay Area climate action organization.

Disclaimer: This list of elected officials is provided for informational purposes only. No electoral endorsement is made or implied by Drawdown Bay Area, the Mapping Project or any of the Project’s partners, affiliates or team members.
