It's time for bold action. Progress on air pollution is slowing—perhaps even reversing—and climate change is an increasing threat with more cars and trucks on our roads. The solution to each is the same: Southern California must accelerate use of zero & near-zero emission vehicles! Move LA's regional ballot measure plan for 2020—we call it VISION 2020—will accomplish just that! Vote to help Move LA win $200,000 to start now to create the regional coalition we need to win.
Diesel emissions are a toxic air contaminant that contributes to high rates of cancer, cardiovascular and respiratory diseases including asthma. Low-income communities along heavily traveled diesel truck corridors especially face high rates of air pollution related diseases. Yet the goods movement industry is Southern California's biggest economic engine and creator of jobs.
Can we have prosperity, clean air, and fight climate change? Yes, if we accelerate use of zero and near-zero emission vehicles.
Here's our VISION 2020 plan:
- Step 1: Build a broad and diverse coalition to coordinate a winning regional ballot measure campaign to accelerate use of zero-emission cars and zero- and near-zero emission trucks.
- Step 2: Convince the state Legislature and our new governor to authorize the South Coast AQMD to put a measure on the ballot in November 2020 to get this done.
- Step 3: Campaign to win!
