Getting From Point A to Point Clean: The Community Movements Powering the Clean Transportation Revolution
If you’re a person with places to be, chances are you’ve had to take a car, bus, train, bike, or walk to get to where you want to go. Maybe you’ve taken time to think about the impact of your trips. Have you asked yourself questions like “Is anyone else noticing the declining air quality around here?” or “Is my commute enjoyable or would I rather teleport to my destination?” (spoiler: we all would).
Join The Redford Center community for a timely discussion on the power and possibilities of clean transportation and environmental storytelling, featuring short films of communities taking matters into their own hands and shaping transportation design that prioritizes the wellbeing and safety of people and the planet. Whether through policy, education, activism, industry, communications, or data, these intertwined narratives will emphasize that there’s a role for everyone in transforming the future of clean transportation.
As part of The Redford Center’s ongoing civic engagement initiatives, Power the Vote: Community Power films spotlight local voices and their stories of unity and collective action to build a healthier, safer, and more just future for all. Introducing clean transportation stories from states across the country, each film invites the public to take action on environmental justice issues, while featuring local activists that shift perceptions on what it means to be an environmentalist and a voter.
