Alex is determined to fight the existential threat of the climate crisis. Having grown up in a low-income, heavily polluted neighborhood, Alex is dedicated to making sure that every family enjoys clean air and clean water. He served for six years as Chair of the California State Senate Committee on Energy, Utilities, and Communications, where he led the development of California’s ambitious renewable energy and climate policies. Alex’s environmental leadership has continued in the U.S. Senate: in addition to cosponsoring the Green New Deal, Alex has introduced sweeping legislation to electrify our nation’s school buses and protect over one million acres of public lands in California, increasing access to nature and preserving California’s natural treasures for generations to come.
