The Bay Area’s Air District is responsible for making sure that we can all breathe clean air. They have been slow to take action to reduce fine particulate matter, called PM, one of the deadliest forms of air pollution. Sonoma County Board of Supervisors Chairperson Lynda Hopkins is a Board Member at the Air District, the body that makes decisions to implement or delay aggressive action.

Suggested email talking points:
Good morning/afternoon Chairperson Hopkins,
Thank you for strong support for climate action. In reference to your role on the Air District Board, I support the strongest possible actions at the Air District to reduce health-harming particulate matter (PM). The worst industrial source of PM pollution in the Bay Area is from refineries, and I ask you to support the strongest Catalytic Cracking Unit technology to reduce emissions by 70%, technology that is in use at the majority of refineries in the US.
The Air District has the regulatory authority to take strong action against deadly air pollution. I am encouraged by your participation on the Board, and look forward to increasingly urgent action to reduce emissions.
