No New Highways Webinar – Greater Greater Washington


Join us to find out why a sustainable and equitable future is a future without new highways or highway expansions. Throughout US history, highways have been a tool to destroy black neighborhoods and perpetuate environmental injustice. We know from decades of research that more freeways and bigger freeways equals more driving, and that to fight climate change, Americans need to drive less.

Montgomery County’s new master plan, Thrive 2050, originally included strong “No New Highways” language, but that language was watered down by the county council’s Planning, Housing and Economic Development Committee. The Coalition for Smarter Growth and other advocates are advocating for strong language to return when the plan goes to the full county council.

Speakers:

– Dr. Sacoby Wilson, University of Maryland Center for Community Engagement, Environmental Justice and Health

-Josh Tulkin, Maryland Sierra Club

– Margaret Schoap, Coalition of Transit Alternatives to the Intermediate County Freeway Extension (TAME)

The event will be moderated by Jane Lyons of the Coalition for Smarter Growth and there will be an opportunity for questions from the audience.
