"I am proud of all the students who are standing up to join the fight against climate change," said Los Angeles City Council President Paul Krekorian. "Los Angeles is a climate leader with big goals, including a 100 percent carbon-free electrical system by 2035. These goals call for serious investment. That's why I've proposed a climate budget for Los Angeles, and it's why I'm pleased to see programs like the Avantus Academy investing in the environmental leaders of tomorrow. This is a great thing for our city and for the students who will benefit from a pathway to meaningful, green jobs."
