As a lead team member and one of the original founders of Mothers Out Front South Bay, I was so uplifted to see our team receive San Jose's 2019 Climate Smart Champion of the Year award! It reminds me that our efforts over the past two years have been very successful, including helping to pass Community Choice Energy, Senate Bill 100, and Climate Smart San Jose.
This not only encourages me, but motivates me to continue with our ambitious efforts to create a more livable climate for all children. And the cherry on top of the cake is the fact that my daughter was named one of the three 2019 Youth Climate Champions of the Year! This makes me so very proud of her! As a youth, it is important for her to know she can make a difference and be a part of the solution to the climate crisis. It is an honor to be her mother and to know that her efforts have been commended as well. Together, we can help pass on a livable planet to future generations.
