About us

Elected Officials to Protect America (EOPA) California is a statewide, non-partisan network of elected officials from across the state who are committed to protecting our communities, public health, and climate for all we represent.

According to the U.N., the science is clear: to avert the worst-case scenarios for our health and our planet, we must phase out dirty fossil fuels.

Environmental justice communities continue to suffer disproportionally because of toxins emitted from fossil fuel production. With offshore wind, and other renewable electricity sources, California can move to a safer, healthier, and prosperous future for everyone. We strongly urge Governor Newsom to stop issuing any more oil and gas permits, and accelerate the state’s transition to a 100% clean energy economy.
