Fellows fight to keep oil wastewater out of California's food system

Should California crops be watered with oil drilling wastewater? This question was on the table as the Bay Area ACE Fellows partnered with the Center for Biological Diversity to push the Toxics Free Table Bill earlier this year. This bill would ban fossil fuel companies from selling oil drilling wastewater to California farmers, a practice that is currently legal and in use across the state.

At HKonJ, movements unite around justice

On the morning of February 11, I headed to downtown Raleigh to participate in the HKonJ Moral March on Raleigh, a march calling to protect the rights and liberties of all citizens, especially marginalized groups, from discriminatory legislation and policies at all levels of government. I was to be one out of tens of thousands of people attending one of the largest marches in state history, and though it was my first time going to any march, I felt like I was part of something very welcoming.

My message to Pruitt: don't kill the EPA.

On February 25, following the confirmation of Scott Pruitt as head of the Environmental Protection Agency, over a hundred Bay Area residents gathered outside of the EPA headquarters. The attendees were dressed in black funeral attire and carried flowers as part of a mock funeral, demonstrating the dire consequences that Scott Pruitt's appointment would have on the agency. Five ACE Fellows and two of their friends were among the crowd. The crowd each received a postcard on which they wrote a note of solidarity to the EPA employees.

NYC Fellows Take Renewables Fight to Albany

Democracy got a little more exciting on February 13, 2017 at the New York State Legislative Offices in Albany. NY Renews, a statewide coalition of over 100 environmental justice and labor organizations, packed the room for the Department of Environmental Conservation state budget hearing to let state senators and assemblymembers know that policies convey a fundamental role in mitigating climate impacts in a world that has not been invulnerable to climate change.

Wake County Public Schools Clean Energy Petition

As major buyers of electricity, school districts can lead the way to a renewable energy future. Solar installations on schools have increased five-fold nationally since 2008. Wake County Public Schools, one of the largest school districts in North Carolina, spends millions of dollars annually on dirty energy.

Not only is burning coal and gas more expensive, it also contributes to air pollution, which aggravates respiratory diseases such as asthma–the leading cause of school absenteeism for children with chronic diseases.

Las Vegas Fellow Champions RenewNV Message

On Monday, February 20, ACE Fellows Sara Smith and Vincent Candelaria joined a group of clean energy activists at the Renew NV press conference. Renew NV, a partnership of Nevada organizations working to build and enhance the state's clean energy economy, called on state legislators to adopt a more aggressive Renewal Portfolio Standard. The group is pushing for 50% of Nevada's energy to come from renewables by 2030 and 80% by 2040. Fellow Sara Smith took the mic and put Nevada legislators on notice.
