Who We Are

The University of California Green New Deal Coalition is a democratically organized coalition of UC organizations and individuals, including students, trainees, staff, unions, faculty, retirees, alumni, and local community members that campaigns for concrete and integrated actions which the University of California (UC) must take to help prevent the worst effects of the climate crisis and to promote environmental justice.

As a leader in climate science, the UC has a responsibility to model the types of climate policy that the world should be adopting. While recognizing the effects climate change will have on our own campuses, we stand in solidarity with frontline communities bearing the brunt of climate change. We call on the UC to deploy its investment, procurement, educational, labor, and research power to help drive a just transition to a more equitable, accountable, and carbon-free future.
