Let's Green CA: Who We Are

Who We Are

Through public education, grassroots organizing, research, and leadership training, Let’s Green CA! is dedicated to making California a model of equitable climate action.

Viewing climate action as a moral imperative, we partner with vulnerable communities and working families throughout our state to build bottom-up solutions to the climate crisis. Confident that people power is the key to transformative climate action, we lift up climate solutions that empower workers and ensure environmental justice. Let’s Green CA! is an initiative of the Romero Institute, a Central Coast nonprofit with a decades-long record of securing justice for the people who need it most.

Our current priorities include advocating for the passage of our Electrify CA! legislation and policy framework in partnership with the Dolores Huerta Foundation and facilitating a home electrification public health and education campaign in vulnerable Central Coast communities. In alliance with environmental justice organizations and labor groups including building trades councils and multiple IBEW locals, we’re also championing workforce and environmental justice standards for energy procurement at each of California’s community choice energy agencies.

Our work is predicated on the state of California’s capacity for leadership. As a leader on environmental issues and the fifth largest economy in the world, we believe the Golden State is uniquely positioned to create a just and equitable model for mitigating the climate crisis that can be replicated worldwide. Climate justice is not only within our power, it’s our moral responsibility.

We recognize that the climate crisis can be overwhelming. It’s hard to know where to start. Today, we invite you to join us in building the solutions to the defining challenge of our time. Together, Let’s Green CA!
