Better Local Transit for a Better Climate Future
Nov 5 @ 3:15 pm – 5:30 pm

 A Presentation, Discussion, and Brainstorming

The transportation sector is the biggest source of greenhouse gas emissions in San Diego. Come learn about and participate in brainstorming on strategies to curb those emissions – through SANDAG’s Regional Transportation Plan and through new funding for improvements to MTS transit services.

The event will be part presentation and part group discussions/brainstorming. The presentations will be given by volunteers from SanDiego350 who will also facilitate the group discussion.

RSVP Here!

The event will be held at San Diego City College, Math & Social Sciences Building, Room MS 140. Click here to view a map of the campus with the location of the building.

Rep. Scott Peters Town Hall
Nov 6 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm

Rep. Scott Peters still refuses to support the Green New Deal. He refuses to reject fossil fuel industry donations. And he refuses to hold a climate town hall.

On Wednesday, Nov 6 he’s holding a limited town hall to discuss how well he's serving San Diego, with all questions screened in advance. This event, starting at 6 pm Wednesday, will be at University City High School – where hundreds of students walked out last month to demand bold climate action like the Green New Deal.

You can help SanDiego350 tell Peters that his foot-dragging on the climate crisis is not ok.

Join us outside the event to distribute information to attendees and sign up climate action supporters. We will meet in front of the school, 6949 Genesee Ave., at 5 pm Weds, Nov. 6.  Doors to the event open at 5:30.

If you are a constituent, please register for Peters’ town hall ASAP and submit a question. You could ask him, for instance, why he prefers small steps to a comprehensive climate action plan with protections for workers and frontline communities.

See you Wednesday! Wear your SD350 t-shirt! (Below: student die in at Rep. Peters's office)

Learn about opportunities to get involved and what your peers are doing to stay proactive. The social will begin around 6:45 so feel free to show up a little earlier than the 7:00 pm start time.

Feature presentation by the transportation team. Transportation is the cause for over half of the carbon emissions in our area. Bee Mittermiller and Toshihiko Ishihara from the transportation team will be speaking about efforts underway to increase public transit and reduce carbon emissions coming from our roads. They will also discuss what our partners are doing to combat the issue and how we are collaborating with them to shape public policy.
