Join advocates, experts, state leaders, students, and community groups from across California at the 2017 Transportation Equity Summit. This year’s summit will focus on connecting state transportation funding to concrete goals that both fight climate change and promote social equity.
The transportation sector — with its heavy reliance on private automobiles — is a leading source of greenhouse gas emissions. California has taken some important steps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions but the way the state spends its transportation dollars doesn’t match our climate or social justice goals.
The transportation summit will consider ways to make sure everyone has safe, convenient, and equitable transportation options. Transportation policy should promote real climate solutions that create opportunity and justice for the people who need them most.
