Stand Up For California Water Justice & Salmon:

Sign Petition To Newsom And Attend the July 5th Rally

Join us July 5 at the State Capitol!
Full Agenda Coming Soon

Why We're Taking Action:

On May 19th, 2023, California Governor Gavin Newsom vowed to suspend environmental laws in order to build new reservoirs, like the Sites Reservoir, and massive diversions, like the Delta Tunnel. This is not the first time Governor Newsom has favored industrial agriculture over California’s people and environment.

Salmon fishing has been shut down throughout the state, including Native communities, due to fish dying for many years from lack of water. The state and feds made the decision to divert water to farms and kill the salmon.

California is forcing our salmon into extinction, and denying people of color clean water and a healthy Delta and San Francisco Bay.

Why are they choosing export crops over people?

This is why we need to take action!

Stay Informed:

“We have never been more disappointed in a California governor than we are with Governor Newsom,” she said. “How is perpetuating environmental injustice, which harms public and environmental health, really any different than red state governors perpetuating social injustice in their states, which Governor Newsom likes to criticize vigorously?”


- Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla, executive director of Restore the Delta

(Excerpt from: "Gavin Newsom wants to fast-track huge water projects in California. Angry environmentalists respond by comparing him to ‘red state governors’")
