On Friday, November 6, 600 of my fellow Angelenos gathered at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels to focus on climate change, and send a clear and deliberate signal to the Conference of Parties (COP-21) taking place this December in Paris.
We’re excited to announce a partnership with KCET, with the creation of an online portal: Climate Change LA on the KCET website, which features the latest climate research about Southern California and provides Angelenos with everyday ways to act on climate.
We know that California is leading on climate — and Los Angeles leaders are part of that charge — so it was great to see a standing-room only crowd assembled in the Tom Bradley Room of Los Angeles City Hall on Thursday, June 25, for the launch of “Path to Positive: Los Angeles—Leveraging Regional Action for Global Impact on Climate Solutions,” an initiative we organized with ecoAmerica.
What a way to finish a week that shined a light on how action on climate change can impact public health: discussing what we’re doing on the ground in Los Angeles with the EPA’s Gina McCarthy at a lunch hosted by the American Lung Association in California.
