Policy Areas Environment & Natural Resources, Public Spaces, Transportation & Mobility
In California, communities with populations that are predominantly Latinx and low-income suffer the greatest burden of pollution and bad air quality, in addition to lacking infrastructure that makes streets safe for walking and biking. Yet for many residents, walking or taking transit are their only options for transportation. For advocates working to advance policies and programs that support healthy, active communities, it is crucial to connect active transportation issues with environmental justice. In Muscoy, CA, grassroots efforts focused on improving walking and bicycling conditions, safety, and reducing local air pollution.
