2019 Legislative Preview: Climate Equity + Transportation

This January during legislative session, we have an opportunity to clean up our transportation system, the single largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions in the state.

Join TCC and our partners in a discussion around the intersection of equitable and clean transportation solutions. What are the implications of focusing our pollution reduction efforts on electrifying vehicle fleets? What are equitable ways to shift mobility choices, create clean fuel standards, and improve energy efficiency? What does a just transition look like? How do we create community-driven strategies and build cross-sector coalitions?
