Eco Centro, 1802 Main Ave San Antonio TX 78212

The City of San Antonio is currently in the process of developing a Climate Action and Adaptation Plan to guide climate-change mitigation and adaptation policies over the next 20 years. We must insist that the plan achieve true climate justice by prioritizing the needs of vulnerable communities. In order for the plan to be robust and effective, it must address the most severe climate impacts and hold polluters accountable.
