SanDiego350 Action Hour
Aug 5 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Join us for San Diego 350's first action hour, focusing on doing the work around organizing for climate-friendly policy in San Diego. We will meet bi-weekly and focus each week on taking concrete action and learning more about how YOU can impact an issue.

This week we will be focusing on SANDAG's upcoming Regional Transportation Plan (RTP). This plan will affect how we get around San Diego County for the next several decades, and it's essential to push SANDAG to have a transit forward plan that lowers greenhouse gas emissions. The RTP is currently in its public comment phase and is taking comments until August 6. We will provide you with the background information you need and assist you in crafting your comment.  Join us and make a  difference!
