East King County Transportation Forum

In Washington, more global warming pollution comes from transportation than from any other sector. It’s time to move to 100% clean transportation! Together we accomplished 100% Clean Electricity last year during the legislative session, and now we can take the next step forward for climate action.

Please join us for an East King County Transportation Forum in Issaquah!

RSVP here so we know we have enough snacks:

When: Tuesday, Oct. 22 from 6:30 pm – 8 pm (Clean vehicles showcase out front from 5:30 – 6:30)
