We know that low-income communities and communities of color are suffering the most severe impacts from a changing climate, and it is our youth who will bear the full impact of the climate crisis.
We support the LA County Board of Supervisors motion to create a youth climate commission.
As Supervisor Solis stated, By inviting a diverse group of youth stakeholders to participate in a LA County Youth Climate Commission, we are creating an historic opportunity for LA County to become the epicenter of a sustainable revolution: a greener world in which we improve health outcomes, foster economic vitality through clean energy jobs, and put a stop to the evolving climate crisis – led and shaped by LA County’s youth.Our youth are an eternal source of hope and motivation. It is through their leadership that we can ensure a healthier, greener world for all.
