Chispa CT presented at the Community Champions on Clean Transportation Panel at the Northeast Diesel Collaborative Partners Meeting in Rhode Island on July 11, 2019. Our team argued strongly about the importance of divesting from fossil fuels and investing in public transit and clean transportation.
In particular, Chispa CT outlined the progress we've made on Clean Buses for Health Niños and environmental justice in Connecticut. These clean buses are key to cutting carbon emissions, improving our poor air quality, and reducing high asthma rates in underrepresented communities.
Chispa CT Organizer Alex Rodriguez spoke forcefully about our climate crisis and the urgent need to mobilize activists who have not been fairly included in the political process.
