Groups Release 2024 Environmental Priorities for Arizona Legislature and Governor


Phoenix, AZ - Today, 25 plus organizations, including Sierra Club - Grand Canyon Chapter, Arizona Asian American Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islanders for Equity (AZ AANHPI for Equity), Arizona Interfaith Power and Light (AZIPL), Chispa Arizona, Vote Solar, and other environmental, faith, and Indigenous groups presented 2024 Environmental Priorities for the Arizona Legislature and Governor. The priorities were presented in the context of water as a top priority and include climate and clean energy, environmental justice, land protection, and democracy, among other issues.

The groups are asking legislators to pass and the governor to sign bills that will help to better conserve water to provide for a more sustainable future and protect rivers and streams, prioritize climate actions to promote clean energy and reduce pollution and to direct resources to communities that have disproportionately suffered the impacts of climate change. They ask that the legislature and governor prioritize environmental justice to address the disparate impacts of environmental harm to communities of color, protect public lands and wildlife, and to advance measures that make it easier for people to vote.
