Establishing a Climate Emergency Department
Today at 9:30 AM PT, LA City Councilmembers Koretz and Blumenthal are hosting a press conference to announce motions that will create a new Climate Emergency Department within LA City Government.
This department would have the responsibility of coordinating LA’s urgent response to the climate crisis. This is an exciting step for LA, and for TCM who contributed much to this strategy.
Chapter members can see some details on the CED in the Local Organizer Handbook. Please consider if and how this might apply to your city. Share your thoughts through comments to this forum post.
Here is Councilmember Koretz’s Facebook Page of the event.
