TCI jurisdictions to share updates during two September webinars


September 4, 2020: The bipartisan group of Northeast and Mid-Atlantic jurisdictions that make up the Transportation and Climate Initiative (TCI) today announced they will host two public webinars in September to share updates and invite public input. During these events, which are open to all, state officials will present new information on TCI’s collaborative work toward a final regional agreement to cap global warming pollution from transportation fuels and invest millions annually to achieve additional benefits through reduced emissions, cleaner transportation, healthier communities, and more resilient infrastructure. Each will also include opportunities for the public to ask questions and provide feedback on the information presented. Both webinars will be recorded and published on the TCI website following the events.

TCI webinar on ensuring environmental justice and equity in a regional low-carbon transportation program
Tuesday, September 29, 2020, 4 - 6 PM

This webinar will focus on proposed measures intended to ensure the program fosters equity for overburdened and underserved communities, building on states’ longstanding commitment to designing a program that benefits all communities, including those on the frontlines of air pollution and climate change impacts. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the fact that racial disparities in exposure to air pollution are reflected in disproportionate impacts of the coronavirus and other health threats. The TCI jurisdictions have received extensive input from a wide range of interested people and organizations on ways states could design and implement a regional low-carbon transportation program that advances equity and environmental justice. Informed by that input and further outreach, TCI state officials will provide updates on proposed strategies to ensure that overburdened and underserved communities benefit from investments and reduced air pollution and have opportunities for meaningful engagement in shaping TCI commitments and implementation moving forward. Details and registration information for the September 29 webinar will be available soon on the TCI website. Please RSVP using the link below so we can notify you when the registration link is available.
