RENTERIA: As someone who grew up in the Central Valley, clean air and clean water has always been personal for me. In 2016, I helped bring national attention to the water crisis in Flint Michigan, and when I was at the California Department of Justice I helped to create what is now the Bureau of Environmental Justice. This was a huge step for our state, but there's more that we can do. I will work to ban fracking and dumping oil waste water in unlined pits, shut down facilities that contaminate our groundwater, and end the sale of gas-powered cars by 2030. We can't keep turning a blind eye to this problem, and we can't allow our leaders to either. Clean air and clean water is about health and safety, and it should be a basic right for every Californian.
