Monthly sessions: Just Energy for All Strategy and Capacity Building

Advancing Just Energy for All through Transportation (Part 1)
UMW Monthly Just Energy for All Strategy and Capacity Building Session
Wednesday, February 17
3:00PM – 4:30PM ET (noon – 1:30PM PT)

Rosa Parks, from Library of Congress

I learned people should stand up for their rights, just as the Children of Israel stood up to the Pharaoh. -Rosa Parks

As we celebrate Rosa Park’s birthday today, one way we too can live out our faith call is to care for the Earth and all its communities by working to advance a transportation system powered by 100% clean and renewable energy.

In the United States, the transportation sector is the main source of planet warming greenhouse gas emissions and a major contributor to air pollution that negatively impacts on our health, particularly the health of women, children, communities of color, and low-income communities.

This month, we will: 

  • Learn about how the transportation sector impacts climate change
  • Examine of the intersections between transportation and climate justice
  • Explore how we can advance just energy for all in the transportation sector
