Los Angeles and California Reach Enviromental Milestones
Applause is in order for Los Angeles and California voters!
LA County residents voted overwhelmingly in support of Measure A, which will provide funding for building parks, restoring rivers, and protecting beaches. With 73% of the vote, Measure A passed, and Angelenos proved that open space and parks matter to us! For more information, please visit

There is also reason to celebrate across the state:
we banned the bag! With the passage of Proposition 67 and the failure of Prop 65, California voted to uphold the plastic bag ban.
Sara Aminzadeh, Executive Director of the California Coastkeeper Alliance, puts it this way:
"Proposition 67 is unquestionably an environmental victory - it will help eliminate the 25 million plastic bags polluting our beaches and waterways. It is also an important ideological victory - it sends a powerful message to the plastic bag industry and to corporate interests across the country that California's environmental protections are not for sale."
