Washington state spends billions of dollars each year on transportation. These projects affect our health, our climate, our livelihoods, and issues of social and economic justice for people across Washington state. But right now, Washington is investing in transportation strategies from 50 years ago – and with climate catastrophe on the horizon, we can’t afford more years of status quo.
Washington state legislators are long overdue to pass a transportation package — but we don’t need just any kind of investment. We need a transformative approach to transportation that meets our needs for health, safety, and affordability, and addresses climate, social, and economic justice. Join us in telling legislators that a better future #TakesTransportation.
