IFPTE Local 30 Marching in the San Francisco Climate March

AFEU (IFPTE Local 30) marched 9/8/18 with IFPTE Local 21 (at EPA) in the SF March.

What’s at stake:

  • It is imperative that we advocate for proactive responses and strong funding for solutions to the environmental crises from our state and the cities, counties, and schools we work for.
  • California is deeply affected by climate change. Drought, wildfires, air pollution, sea rise, and extreme heat waves are directly linked to climate change in the state. For example, increasing temperatures and drought are contributing heavily to devastating fires statewide that are causing death, property loss, budget crises, and destruction of natural ecosystems. Experts say the situation is only getting worse.
  • We face major barriers to meaningful climate justice from corporate interests. CA is one of the largest suppliers of dirty oil in the country, and our regulators are continuing to hand out permits. Unfortunately, Governor Brown refuses to ban fracking, an extremely dangerous practice that can contaminate our waters and cause earthquakes through destabilization of the ground.
