Tom’s Justice-Centered Climate Plan will bring us into a sustainable, healthy, equitable future, together. He will also establish and fund a community-led Civilian Climate Corps to enable people to develop solutions that work best for their communities. Tom’s plan includes justice-based pollution reduction targets, as well as the creation of new, good, union jobs.
Since 2010, the grassroots movements Tom’s been involved in have put more renewable energy on the grid, kept a proposed dirty power plant out of a heavily polluted community, helped farmers and ranchers hold coal companies accountable, created tens of thousands of new, green jobs, and lowered electricity costs for California public schools. Tom was one of the first to oppose the XL Keystone Pipeline, and has stood at the forefront of the movement to divest from fossil fuel corporations.
