In Washington, more global warming pollution comes from transportation than from any other sector. It’s time to move to 100% clean transportation. Together we accomplished 100% clean electricity last year during the legislative session; now we can take the next step forward for climate action.

Come hear about some of the good things happening in Issaquah in the transportation realm. We will discuss some of the challenges we face locally and statewide, and how we can meet them together! Learn more about the four county clean air rule, the clean fuels bill, and Initiative 976, as well as the many ways to engage and ensure we move forward together for a just, equitable and clean future.

This is a free event, open to the public. Snacks and beverages will be provided.
