IBEW Local 569 is supporting the People’s Climate March San Diego on September 21st because the time for climate action is now. From severe drought to an almost year-round threat of wildfires, we are already seeing devastating impacts from climate change on working families. It is our responsibility to face this harmful threat and protect our communities. Not only do we have the technology to generate cleaner energy and reduce our reliance on oil and polluting fossil fuels, California is living proof that with the right policies in place, we can put thousands to work building the 21st century infrastructure of the future. In fact, thanks to our statewide focus on sustainability, IBEW electricians are hard at work every day building solar projects, electric vehicle charging stations, light rail systems and high-performance green buildings. This is valuable construction work that is putting paychecks in our pockets, food on our tables and sustaining families throughout our region all while creating a cleaner, greener, healthier planet.
