Demand state and local DOTs prioritize public transportation spending on climate and equity over new roads and highways now.
Thanks to our work together, Congress unlocked billions in new funding and roughly a trillion in total funding for transportation nationwide, but here’s the bottom line:
State and local governments have an incredible opportunity to spend billions of dollars prioritizing investments in public transit, electric vehicles and charging infrastructure, and other low-carbon transportation options and significantly impact the fight against climate change and racial and economic inequity.
Or they can prioritize adding lanes to existing roads and building new highways instead and significantly increase the greenhouse gas emissions and toxic pollution that will make the climate crisis worse.
Our work got Congress to allocate the money, now it’s critical that we get state and local governments to follow through to get the job done. Add your name and your pressure by signing the petition now.
