Welcome to Climate HQ

Climate HQ is a campus-wide initiative launched in April 2021 with the mission to serve as SF State's communication hub and broadcast service for all things climate action. Our network of social justice warriors is dedicated to producing quality information for the public sphere. We are the change, and the time to act is now.
