Los Angeles Moves Toward Mobilization in Response to the Climate Emergency

“On Wednesday July 3, by 13-0-2 vote of the City Council, the City of Los Angeles became the first government in the world to create and fund an official City Office and City Commission to develop and implement a mobilization plan, in response to the climate emergency. 

This vote enacts the following:

  • Creation of the Office of the Climate Emergency Mobilization, with a director who will help design and implement the city’s mobilization plans;

  • Establishment of a representative Climate Emergency Commission;

  • Initiating Community Assemblies to bring traditionally marginalized voices into the decision-making process;

  • Formalizing L.A.’s declaration of Climate Emergency within 60 days.”
