Congresswoman Barbara Lee
Remarks at the CCL Northern California Regional Conference
January 18, 2020. Oakland, California (7:58)

In this video, recorded on a hand-held cell phone, Congresswoman Lee recounts a meeting of the Democratic National Committee at which delegates disagreed, mostly along racial lines, on a plan to hold a presidential debate dedicated to climate. The proposal was rejected. In these remarks, Lee emphasized that diversity and environmental justice must be woven into our climate action strategy: “We must broaden our movement to ensure that EJ is an integral part of climate action.”
