Join AC Transit Board candidate Jovanka Beckles, Berkeley City Councilmembers Kate Harrison and Cheryl Davila, Building Trades union member Rob Rooke, and bus operator and labor organizer Nathaniel Arnold for a discussion on putting public transit at the center of a Green New Deal for the East Bay.
“Last month wildfires raged across the West Coast, choking the Bay Area with smoke and leaving us with the worst air quality in the world. Ever-increasing greenhouse gas emissions make our climate hotter while our quality of life deteriorates. We must implement a Green New Deal — a massive public investment in green infrastructure — to curb emissions while ensuring good jobs for all. We can begin instituting a local Green New Deal now with massively expanded, fare-free public transit. “
