We Need Governor Newsom to Act to Protect California’s Wildlife, Water, & Communities

When Trump took office, California promised a wall of resistance against his Administration’s federal rollbacks of keystone laws that protect our health and environment.

Early last Saturday morning, the California Legislature took bold action to uphold this promise by passing SB 1 – the California Environmental, Public Health, and Workers Defense Act of 2019 – to protect California from the Trump administration’s reckless rollbacks of our foundational environmental and labor health laws.

Unfortunately, Governor Newsom is threatening to veto the bill – siding with private water interests and the Trump administration.

With a President that has taken strides to dismantle common sense protections for our environment and public health, it falls to states like California to defend our clean air, water, and communities.

Help us remind Governor Newsom of his promise to lead California in its fight against the unsound decisions coming out of the White House.

What You Can Do:

Call Governor Newsom at (916) 445-2841 to remind him of his promise to lead California & urge him to sign SB 1 by saying:

My name is ___________, I am a resident of ________, California, and I’m calling to urge Gov. Newsom to sign SB 1.

SB 1 will protect California from the effects of recent and future environmental protection rollbacks by the Trump administration. Vetoing SB 1 would be a rash decision based on false information and signal that Governor Newsom sides with the Trump administration’s water policy. That would be detrimental to California, its environment, and its communities.

I’m asking Gov. Newsom to lead California in its fight against the Trump administration by signing SB 1.

If you do not get an answer, please leave a message. Every call counts!

Email Governor Newsom with the following message (Selecting “Legislation” or “SB 1” from the dropdown menu):
