In September of 2021, Santa Ana passed a climate emergency and environmental justice resolution that was introduced by Councilmember Jessie Lopez. The resolution established clear processes to reduce the city’s dependence on fossil fuels, remove lead from soil, expand green spaces, and bring jobs into their community. This resolution also made Santa Ana just the fourth city in the U.S. to endorse the Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty and brought their city into alignment with the SAFE Cities movement’s goal of stopping new fossil fuel infrastructure and implementing a just transition.
