Tell your Governor to commit to a transportation future that cuts pollution and inequality!
A group of 11 Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states and D.C., are just weeks away from finalizing an agreement that will create the Transportation and Climate Initiative (TCI), a regional transportation program that would cap emissions and invest in clean transportation solutions.
With strong commitments to equity, TCI could potentially invest $2 billion in low-income communities and communities of color in the first year, reduce carbon and pollution emissions, and fund a healthier transportation system.
But, these benefits all depend on the final agreement that states are developing now. We need to ensure this agreement includes equity, complementary policies that guarantee emissions reductions, and worker protections.
Urge your Governor to adopt a program that lowers pollution while investing in and amplifying the voices of communities who have suffered from pollution exposure and inadequate access to affordable, reliable transportation.
Our communities can't wait, the time to act is now!
