Legislation

#4 in the US, #6 in the World

CEMTF was founded to continue the work of the ad-hoc subcommittee that facilitated the Climate Emergency Declaration for Berkeley, CA. Berkeley's Declaration on June 12, 2018 made it the 4th jurisdiction in the US and 6th in the world to declare. As of today there are 1,863 jurisdictions that have declared Climate Emergencies.
Community Visioning

19 Bay Area,
35 NorCal
Jurisdictions

After Berkeley's Climate Emergency Declaration, we helped spread the idea and model legislation throughout the Bay Area and across Northern California. Today 90% of Bay Area residents live in a city and/or county that has declared a climate emergency.

Letter from the Director

"

The need to build a social and economic system that is based on sustaining life rather than corporate profits is more urgent now than ever before. The coronavirus pandemic is proving that while we are all being impacted to different degrees our best strategy is to be all in together. Everyone has to be part of the solution, or the health of everyone is threatened.

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought to the forefront the deadly nature of environmental inequalities that disproportionately impact the Black, Brown, Indigenous, Latinx, POC, and marginalized peoples in our communities. We know this is just one of a growing number of traumas we will face as our planet becomes increasingly unlivable. Climate and disease disasters are added to the ongoing crises in housing, health care, education, immigration, human rights and fragile democracy.  These are all fueled by extreme wealth inequality and racial injustice.

Many cities and localities have passed ambitious climate emergency declarations calling for regional collaboration. Now, we need to move as a region to concrete action plans with measurable, direct goals and timelines for action.

Climate Emergency Declarations
A powerful majority of Bay Area cities and counties have declared a climate emergency.
Each city sets different goals but they all call for a regional collaborative effort.
