Stop East Bay Community Energy (EBCE) From Giving Away $15 Million in East Bay Customer Funds
We Demand EBCE Fund Asthma Prevention by Investing in a just transition for Environmental Justice Communities.
Help us convince the Board of Directors for East Bay Community Energy (EBCE) to redirect a proposed $15 million UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital donation. This money could be better used to enhance EBCE’s own programs that directly reduce the triggers for asthma, by eliminating fossil fuel pollution. The existing funds for those program are inadequate to allow low income customers to participate. This disparity furthers the inequitable access to a clean, healthy environment that is a result of historic and systemic racism.
This item was intended to be discussed before August but the board has CANCELED the EBCE Executive Committee Meeting that was meant to occur Friday July 29th, 2022 at 12:00 pm. The vote on this item is expected to occur at the Board of Directors Meeting on September 21st, 2022 at 5:00pm PST but in the meantime, we must urge the board to reallocate these funds.
Please sign on to the sample letter below or write your own to help us redirect the $15 million to more equitably and efficiently allocate resources to prevent asthma.
