Call to Action: Urge Gov. Newsom to Protect Our Community

Gov. Newsom will soon appoint a new member of the SCAQMD Governing Board. Urge him to select someone who will prioritize our community.

The South Coast Air Quality Management District is the government body responsible for ensuring that the air quality is protected for significant portions of Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Los Angeles counties. It is managed by a Governing Board consisting of 13 representatives. There is currently one vacancy on the board, and that position is appointed by the governor.

We encourage you to contact Governor Newsom’s office and urge him to appoint somebody who will prioritize protecting the community from pollution, from catastrophic accidents as well as continual low-level air pollution.
