In California, our goal is to get the UC campuses to commit to Zero Hunger on campus by 2030. While the UCs have already done a lot to address hunger on campus, there is more that needs to be done to make sure that no student is hungry on campus. We will continue to show support from students and meet with administrators to get a Zero Hunger commitment, as well as hosting food pantry fundraisers to alleviate hunger on campus in the short term Clean Energy We all know that burning oil, gas, and coal has polluted our air, water, and land for decades – and now it’s changing the climate even faster than scientist feared it would. We know we can have healthier communities right now and a livable future for ourselves and generations to come. But to get there, we must transform the way we produce and consume energy. That’s got to start with a commitment to 100% clean, renewable energy. A 100 percent clean energy future means shifting from dirty energy to completely clean energy sources wherever and however we can. Renewable energy is abundant, cost efficient and growing rapidly. In order to make this transition fully, we concurrently need to phase out forms of dirty energy in our state – especially new projects to drill for oil. To build off our success in working with UC to transition the university system to 100% clean purchased electricity, this year we focused on calling for the state of California to ban hydraulic fracturing (fracking) for oil, and new oil drilling projects. To kickoff this campaign our priority this year was to build the “Students Against Oil Drilling” coalition. We garnered support from other student groups – from sustainably minded clubs to athletes to campus radio stations – and collected letters of support from faculty on campus. This worked to elevate the voices of campus communities in the statewide debate over oil drilling. Once taking office Governor Newsom placed a moratorium on new fracking projects!
