Simply put, the tireless work our alliance put into 2021 was incredible. Our 2021 chair, Maleeka, wrote an end-of-year wrap-up that showcases our community's powerful abilities to better San Diego. Read through our accomplishments below!

Dear San Diego Green New Deal Alliance community,

 

As 2021 comes to a close and we slow down to enjoy the holidays, I want to acknowledge some of the great work that we have done together this year.

2021 was a hard year—the pandemic continues to expose the problems that plague our systems and how inequities are exacerbated during overlapping crises.

 

Nevertheless, our coalition came together to build a strong and supportive community, leverage our collective power, and change our region for the better.

I’ve highlighted some of our key accomplishments below, which was the result of the hard work of numerous organizations and individual activists. A huge thank you to the Working Group Chairs, the Steering Committee Members, the Advisory Board members, all of our amazing volunteers, and those that have contributed financially to make our work possible.

Of course, there are many more wins that happen behind the scenes, including new friendships, solidarity, community, and cultivation of budding activists who gave public comments or attended a lobbying meeting for the first time!

 

Taking all this in, my heart is full of gratitude for the work we have done together and I cannot wait to see the Alliance continue to blossom in 2022. 

 

Wishing you all a joyful and rejuvenating holiday season,

 

Maleeka

Chair of the San Diego Green New Deal Alliance

 

PS: Don’t forget that Chair Fletcher officially proclaimed April 6th San Diego Green New Deal Alliance Day in the County of San Diego, so be prepared to celebrate!"
