The USDA requires California schools to serve dairy milk to children, regardless if they are lactose intolerant or if they will toss and waste the product. Most of our CA public school students are of color and the Latinx, African American and Asian American communities have higher rates of lactose intolerance and deserve the right to not feel pressured to take dairy milk.

The dairy industry is also notoriously cruel to animals, impregnating them constantly so they can produce milk for their entire lives killing them at 4-6 years of age, less than half their expected lifespans.

The mass production or force breeding of cows, exacerbates the number of dairy methane emissions into the environment which is the most potent form of gas that pollutes the environment.

California has set the ambitious goal of reducing this pollutant's emissions by 40 percent by 2030, the first region in the world to set such a goal. We need to do all it takes to ensure the protection of our communities and environment.
