NorCal (Northern California) Chapter


The Elders Climate Action Northern California chapter formed in Spring 2017. As concerned elders, we are dedicated to taking action on the local, regional and state level to address the threat of climate change. We are working to build local action groups, provide outreach and information about ECA, partner with other organizations, and raise our voices on statewide issues. We welcome new members as we build a powerful movement of elder climate activists. The geographic area of our chapter is Fresno to the Oregon border, including the San Francisco Bay Area. Members are encouraged to join the monthly chapter calls
