Join us: Frontline Solutions for
Clean and Just Transportation

MARCH 12 at 12pm noon (PST)

Join Front and Centered and Disability Rights Washington for a conversation with frontline activists from across the state who are working for a more clean and just transportation system. 

Transportation makes up 40% of Washington State’s greenhouse gas pollution and is a core contributor to inequitable impacts of pollution in the state, with the most overburdened communities being disproportionately communities of color. These impacts literally take years off our lives.

Through Front and Centered statewide listening sessions and surveys, Washington’s communities of color named air quality and health, and increasing the quantity and quality of public transit as priorities for action in our new report:

The voices of people of color and people with disabilities have been missing when it comes to transportation, and it shows. Across our state, in big cities and rural areas, transportation benefits have been lopsided toward the wealthier and whiter communities, while the impacts — pollution, more dangerous roads, fewer transit options — pile up on lower-income Black, brown and disabled people.

Right now, state legislators are debating transportation packages in the tens of billions of dollars that will lock-in climate impacts for decades. Front and Centered and Disability Rights Washington have done a series of listening sessions with people from all over the state resulting in Front and Centered’s Just Movement Community Report and Disability Rights Washington’s Transportation Access Storymap. Hear directly from frontline communities what we need from our transportation system, what we don’t, and how legislative proposals compare.

Moderated by Front and Centered community leadership and with policy analysis by Front and Centered and Disability Rights Washington.
