Clean, accessible transportation– we all depend on it!
Friday, September 25, 2020, 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM PDT
Join Terea Macomber, Electric Vehicle Director, Grid Alternatives, and Woody Hastings, Energy Program Manager, The Climate Center for a conversation about the challenges and opportunities in securing equitable, clean transportation policies and infrastructure, with moderator, CEO Ellie Cohen. Terea and Woody will share their expertise about the fundamental need for reliable transportation- from public transport to personal vehicles and bikes—to ensure a functional society, how transportation policies have often been used to marginalize lower-income communities and communities of color, and how, working together, we can secure accessible, clean transportation for everyone. With transportation the single largest measured source of greenhouse gases in California, a rapid transition to greenhouse gas-free, equitable mobility is a key goal of The Climate Center’s Climate-Safe California campaign.
