Volunteer for the WE CAN! campaign
Join the fight to get youth to the forefront of clean air and water equity issues in the Inland Empire and Central Valley.
It is time for young people to have a real voice in our government.
The Ambassadors at EnviroVoters Ed Fund are happy to announce our campaign — WE CAN: Water Equity and Clean Air Now! Our campaign tackles the severe inequities surrounding water equity and clean air in the Central Valley and Inland Empire by putting our youth at the forefront of fighting for these issues.
The Central Valley and Inland Empire have some of the nation’s worst air quality, especially from warehouses, which bring exhaust emissions and displace our communities of color. Long-term health risks like respiratory diseases, lung cancer, and impaired cognitive functioning will severely impact our community if we do not act now.
That is why we are calling for all youth aged 18 to 25 in the Central Valley and Inland Empire to join our team. By joining, you will learn how to advocate for a youth-led climate board that will give young people a voice in local decision-making to achieve environmental justice for our communities!
As a member, you will be joining our WE CAN campaign to take part in:
- Organizing tactics such as power building, outreach, phone/text banking, collective action, and communications
- Help host 3 educational workshops, 2 town halls, and engage in countless civic participation opportunities
- Play a critical role in creating our very own youth-climate led board by meeting with 2 boards per region and become an advocate
The WE CAN Campaign will provide you with the organizing and political tactics that will allow you to continue fighting for your community beyond the campaign. What else are you waiting for? Sign up today!
The California Environmental Voters Ambassadors Program identifies, cultivates, and supports young leaders from marginalized communities in the Central Valley and Inland Empire. The goal is for this cohort of young climate champions to build power to effect change on key issues like clean air, clean water, and climate resiliency, with a focus on racial justice, equity, and a green and just economic recovery.
