Transportation and Climate Initiative Workshop and Networking Pizza Dinner

CT’s Transportation Future Dinner and Workshop

This is the third meeting convened and perhaps the most important. The multi-state Transportation Climate Initiative to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is at an important phase and asking for state level and regional public input.

Everything we do is affected by our state’s transportation systems and investments in infrastructure. The state’s transportation sector is also the largest generator of greenhouse gas emissions, quickening our path toward climate crisis. Motor vehicle emissions disproportionately harm urban, low-income, and people of color in our state. We can work together to address the impending climate catastrophe, public health disparities, and improve the quality of life for Connecticut residents.

Acadia Center, Transport Hartford, the Center for Latino Progress, the CT Sierra Club, CT League of Conservation Voters, CT Roundtable for Climate and Jobs, and CT Clean Water Action invite you to join us on Tuesday, Oct 29th for a networking dinner and workshop. We need your voice and the state’s leaders need to understand your concerns, challenges, and hopes for the program being developed to modernize and reduce emissions from CT’s transportation system.

We will discuss Connecticut’s role in the Transportation & Climate Initiative (TCI), a multi-state effort to reduce transportation emissions, identify opportunities to engage in the TCI process, and identify how this aligns with your community’s needs. TCI will address and fund cross-cutting issues such as housing, health, access to transportation and jobs, climate change and reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Your voice is extraordinarily important.
