TCI webinar on ensuring environmental justice and equity in a regional low-carbon transportation program
4 – 6 PM on Tuesday, September 29, 2020
On Tuesday, September 29 at 4-6pm ET, the bipartisan group of Northeast and Mid-Atlantic jurisdictions that make up the Transportation & Climate Initiative (TCI) will hold the second of two public September webinars to share updates and invite public input on TCI’s collaborative work toward a final regional agreement to cap global warming pollution from transportation fuels and invest millions annually to achieve additional benefits through reduced emissions, cleaner transportation, healthier communities, and more resilient infrastructure.
Please RSVP using the button below. All are encouraged to RSVP as soon as possible to ensure you receive the webinar link as soon as it is available.
The September 29 webinar will focus on proposed measures intended to ensure that 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.
The Transportation & Climate Initiative is facilitated by the Georgetown Climate Center. Please contact with any questions, or to request language translation or other assistance related to the webinar.
