Assemblymember Ash Kalra and SCIL Continuing the Fight to Save Tropical Forests


Tomorrow, February 15th, Assemblymember Ash Kalra (D-San Jose), along with several others, will be discussing the importance of tropical forests and the policies governments and corporations can take to protect them on an Environment America webinar at 2PM tomorrow. These actions include legislation such as our co-sponsored California Deforestation Free Procurement Act, which we have worked on for several years and made it as far as the Governor's desk only to be vetoed.

This year, SCIL will continue working with Assemblymember Kalra and other stakeholders on an audit request to the Joint Legislative Audit Committee to quantify exactly how much of our state's procurement dollars are tied to commodities coming from tropical forests. We will also engage the Department of General Services on how to move a policy forward that ensures California's state procurement is not contributing to tropical deforestation.

Please join us for this important conversation by registering for the webinar WEDNESDAY at 2PM by clicking on the link below!



Judie Mancuso Reappointed to City of Laguna Beach Environmental Sustainability Committee


Last week, the Laguna Beach City Council unanimously reappointed SCIL founder and president, Judie Mancuso, to a third 2-year term on the Laguna Beach Environmental Sustainability Committee, where she will continue to serve as the Committee's vice chair.

Since her original appointment, Judie has helped craft local ordinances that banned single use plastics, balloons, rodenticide use on city property, among other environmentally-friendly policies. We know that these kinds of policies protect our wildlife and keep our oceans and open spaces clean.

We look forward to seeing the work of Judie and the Committee in 2023!

Thank you all for your continued support. If you have already made a donation...thank you so much! If you have not, please consider making one today.

Thank you so much,

Judie Mancuso, founder/CEO/president
