Friends of the Earth Action Denounces Newsom Recall

Washington, DC — California is preparing for a special election on September 14 to recall Governor Gavin Newsom, an effort primarily driven and funded by conservative donors and Republicans.

In response, Friends of the Earth Action President Erich Pica issued the following statement:

This recall election is a blatant power grab by Trump Republicans. The state of California does not need anti-vaccine, climate denying, conspiracy theorists to take control in the midst of public health and climate crises. We need leaders who believe in climate change, science and facts. Therefore, Friends of the Earth Action strongly urges Californians to vote “NO” on the recall of Governor Newsom.
