End of February 2020
The first week of March is going to be a busy one for Urban Environmentalists!
How the Car Lobby Rewrote Our Laws And How We Can Reclaim Cities for People
Join us for a conversation with Greg Shill and Jeff Wood at Manny's!
Monday, March 2 at 7 PM we'll be joined at Manny's (3092 16th Street, San Francisco, CA) by Greg Shill (author of "Should the Law Subsidize Driving") and Jeff Wood (host of the "Talking Headways" podcast) titled "How the Car Lobby Rewrote Our Laws And How We Can Reclaim Cities for People." We're looking forward to a deep dive on the law and transportation!
Check out the event details on Manny's website or go straight to the Eventbrite page (tickets are $10).
Remember to vote!
Every election is now a climate election, but environmental voters have historically not turned out to vote as much as other interest groups' voters have (www.environmentalvoter.org). If you live in California, during the March 3rd presidential primary election, we have an opportunity to elect candidates who prioritize climate and housing at all levels. If you are lucky enough to live in San Mateo or Santa Clara Counties, it's so easy to vote that there's almost no excuse not to. Either:
We recommend the following sets of endorsements for voters in the Bay Area:
Transbay Bus Lane Petition
In a previous newsletter, we told you about a developing initiative to bring a bus lane back to the Bay Bridge (see our blog post on Bay Bridge Bus Lanes). That campaign is now live and Assemblymember Rob Bonta has introduced legislation in Sacramento, AB2824! Sign the petition to show your support.
We Support Enhancing California's Density Bonus
California Assemblymember Gonzalez introduced AB 2345 to enhance the state's existing density bonus. You can read more about it in the letter we co-signed with Up For Growth.

This has been a tough month, and I know that we can get pass it. If we are truly capable, then we will be able to do it. I hope that we can make things better for one another, or at least that is my wish. I have lots of things that I need to do next month, and I am not going to let this month get the way of it all. I wish to do great things for myself.

Even while it can appear like the first step is the easiest, it's actually the most difficult
