Attend a board meeting
In Truckee, decision making power is shared between several independent entities (Truckee Town Council, Truckee Donner PUD, Truckee Fire District, Truckee Sanitation District and the Truckee School Board). All of these entities make decisions that will effect our town's ability to move towards a cleaner, more sustainable future. We ask our members to advocate during public comment periods of board meetings.

California is making serious headway on pro-climate legislation. Please find below a list of legislation that has been introduced in the California Assembly and Senate. Please reach out to your California Senator and Assembly Member. If you live in Truckee, those are Brian and Megan Dahle respectively. You can call or email them. Explain to them briefly why action on climate change is important to you personally and then list the pieces of legislation that you would like them to support.
