Rally To End the Gas Car Era
Location: Cal EPA, 1001 I St, Sacramento, CA 95814
Date: June 9, 2022 - 8:30a rally, 9:00a hearing starts
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) must step up for climate action. Join a climate justice rally outside the June 9th CARB hearing to push the Board to do the right thing and speed the transition to 100% electric vehicles. CARB’s latest clean cars proposal allows huge numbers of new dirty, gas-burning cars to be sold after 2030 and fails to ensure equitable EV access for low-income communities of color. We can’t achieve equity without a stronger 2030 sales target and mandatory provisions that support communities hit first and worst by high gas prices, tailpipe pollution and the climate crisis.
The rally will feature powerful speakers, chants, and performance art to show our collective power as we pressure CARB to take the urgent action needed. Following the rally, supporters will be encouraged to bring our policy demands inside the hearing and make public comments.
Event co-hosts include the Center for Biological Diversity, Let’s Green California, 350 Sacramento, Climate Center, Oil & Gas Action Network, Extinction Rebellion SF Bay, 350 Bay Area, Alliance of Nurses for Healthy Environments, 350 Silicon Valley, Climate Hawks Vote, Plug in America, and California Interfaith Power & Light.
