Did you know that 8 Washington Democrat lawmakers are meeting behind closed doors to negotiate a transportation package that will guarantee more greenhouse gas and air pollution?

What if we could pinpoint exactly how much more pollution will be generated by a proposal? Would our smart, progressive legislators sit up and listen? Join us for an exciting community briefing with national leaders in transportation and climate activism to learn how you can put such a tool into action to fight for more transit, safer streets, and cleaner air.

WHAT: Front and Centered (a coalition of BIPOC groups from around the state) is joining forces with Disability Rights Washington and 350 WA, to unveil a new tool created by the Rocky Mountain Institute that uses peer-reviewed methods to calculate the long-term impacts of building more highways and roads. More information.
WHEN: Thursday, October 21, 1:00pm
