Tuesday, September 29, 2020. 4:00 PM. Webinar: Transportation and Climate Initiative webinar on ensuring environmental justice and equity in a regional low-carbon transportation program. Sponsored by TCI. More information here.
This webinar will focus on proposed measures intended to ensure the program fosters equity for overburdened and underserved communities, building on states’ longstanding commitment to designing a program that benefits all communities, including those on the frontlines of air pollution and climate change impacts. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the fact that racial disparities in exposure to air pollution are reflected in disproportionate impacts of the coronavirus and other health threats. The TCI jurisdictions have received extensive input from a wide range of interested people and organizations on ways states could design and implement a regional low-carbon transportation program that advances equity and environmental justice. Informed by that input and further outreach, TCI state officials will provide updates on proposed strategies to ensure that overburdened and underserved communities benefit from investments and reduced air pollution and have opportunities for meaningful engagement in shaping TCI commitments and implementation moving forward. Details and registration information for the September 29 webinar will be available soon on the TCI website.
