Dear Central Valley Progressives,

 

As you may know, Trump’s EPA and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration are proposing to roll back fuel economy standards.

 

I just learned that the only hearing on this issue in California will be next Monday, Sept. 24, in Fresno. The Sierra Club is running a free bus from Oakland to Fresno, to bring folks in from the Bay Area – but we need to pack this hearing and make all our voices heard. Can you join us, and invite others in your community?

Here’s more about the hearing – one of only 3 total in the country:

To reserve a spot on the Oakland bus, email julia.foote@sierraclub.org.

 

PlugIn America will also be having a huge Electric Vehicle rally in Fresno that morning, Sept. 24, from 8 to 10 am, at The Grand 1401, 1401 Fulton Street, in Fresno. Contact kstainken@pluginamerica.org if you plan to participate.

 

I will be there to testify, and I invite you and your networks to send folks as well. Please share this widely, and let me know if you plan to attend by replying to this email. 

 

Thank you!

Vanessa
