Watch California Natural Resources Secretary Wade Crowfoot’s remarks at 2021 Coolest in LA gala. Accepting his award as an honoree of this year’s event, Secretary Crowfoot speaks about Climate Resolve and the importance of diligent climate advocacy that must take place at the local level.
Climate Resolve builds collaborations to champion equitable climate solutions. We connect communities, organizations and policymakers to address a global problem with local action. We inclusively develop practical initiatives that reduce climate pollution and prepare for climate impacts. Using our collective power to tackle climate change, we are creating a thriving California and inspiring others to act. Our purpose is a just and resilient future.
Since its launch in 2010, Climate Resolve has prioritized working with communities that are most affected by climate change impacts. The residents of these communities are predominantly Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC). Our work includes advocating in partnership with grassroots groups, assisting communities to obtain funding for climate solutions, and ensuring equitable implementation of climate legislation. As a collective, Climate Resolve staff have identified and made commitments to elevate racial, social, and environmental equity throughout all of our work.
