Youth Transportation Town Hall
Dec 2 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Join San Diego 350, Mid-City CAN, Youth4Climate, Green New Deal UCSD, and SANDAG Board members: Mayor Catherine Blakespear, Encinitas, County Supervisor Lawson Remer, La Mesa Councilmember Jack Shu, Teddy Martinez, (representing San Diego Councilmember Dr. Jennifer Campbell) for a town hall focusing on students and our public transit system. Many students rely on public transit to get to school, work, and access internships, to socialize and meet other critical needs. Transportation in San Diego also accounts for nearly half of greenhouse gas emissions. Youth will be the ones that disproportionally face the burden of climate change for not acting sooner.

Join us on December 2 from 5-7 pm to learn what youth need in our transportation system from their lived experiences!

Speak up on Transportation Justice at the SANDAG Board of Directors Meeting with SanDiego350
Dec 10 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) is moving towards adopting its Regional Plan (RP) that will affect San Diego through 2050 and beyond. Currently, transportation is responsible for 41% of greenhouse gas emissions in the San Diego County region due to a long over-reliance on private vehicles and roads. With climate impacts worsening – including droughts, fires, and rising sea levels – we cannot wait to enact the bold changes we need to reduce emissions.

We applaud SANDAG for advancing this plan, which is the boldest that SANDAG has proposed in decades because it takes the first step in pivoting the region away from a car-centric future to one that prioritizes transit and active transportation. However, SANDAG must take further steps to reduce emissions and support transit equity, including adopting the San Diego Transportation Equity Working Group’s 10 transit lifelines. SANDAG will be voting on the plan during this meeting, join us to push them to be bold on transit priorities.

Join us at the next SANDAG board meeting to speak up for better public transit! Once you sign up, we will contact you with more information. It's easier than you think and really makes a difference!
