SAFE Cities Network for Local Government Leaders
Members of the network share expertise, experience, and knowledge on how to pass policies in their communities as part of the SAFE Cities movement. SAFE Cities supports local governments in partnership with Elected Officials to Protect America.
Whether it’s zoning out new refineries and gas stations, electrifying buildings and bus fleets, or moving power generation to 100% renewable sources, SAFE Cities is transforming the narrative around the impact local communities can have when it comes to protecting the climate and people’s health from fossil fuels.
