At the annual school-kids’ Climate Strike in September 2019, middle-school student Supriya Patel asked state and local politicians, “Will you speak up and protect your constituents, or will you choose to be spineless, bowing down to corporate interests and being scolded by a 13-year-old girl?” Patel founded the Sacramento chapter of Fridays for Future.

Sacramento Climate Coalition got its start leading the successful 2014 fight against a 100-railcar train that would have been rolling through Sacramento each day with sand tar and fracked oil. Now, in 2020, the Coalition is pressing for local policies that reduce climate impacts on Sacramento’s disadvantaged communities.
