Sophia understands that we must expand our environmental policy out of its silos and into every part of our city.
The only way to truly combat climate change is for it to reach into all facets of our government.
- Fully committed to mitigating the impact of climate change and environmental inequity Sophia would open a Department of Environment.
- Chicago residents deserve clean water, clean food and clean air as basic human rights.
- Sophia will ensure Chicago acknowledges high amounts of lead in our water as a public health crisis. Sophia will work swiftly to accelerate the lead pipe replacement program that is woefully behind schedule and protect our residents and children against lead poisoning to achieve zero lead pipes in Chicago.
