CA - South Bay Mothers Out Front represents San Jose community at press conference!

Along side San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo, Mothers Out Front South Bay co-founder Linda Hutchins-Knowles spoke at a press conference unveiling the city’s ambitious new sustainability plan, called Climate-Smart San José.  One of just four speakers at the press conference, Linda was tapped to represent the San Jose community because of Mothers Out Front's vital role in mobilizing public support for a key component of the plan, SanJose’s new community choice energy program. Climate-Smart San José positions San Jose as one of the only major U.S. cities to release a detailed and comprehensive blueprint for how to achieve the emissions reductions goals of the Paris Climate Agreement—and in a way that seeks to uplift and enrich the entire community including those of limited economic means.

They look forward to supporting the implementation of this innovative plan that will demonstrate that a sustainable city is a happier, healthier, and more equitable city.
