Take Action: Endorse the Transportation Bill of Rights
We are calling on Washington State Legislators to join us to create a Just Transition away from fossil fuels and transform transportation in Washington from a dirty engine of inequality to a catalyst for clean jobs and opportunity. The Yakima Asian Pacific Islander Coalition along with other Front and Centered members, Disability Rights Washington, and 350 Washington have worked to develop a Transportation Bill of Rights that puts people at the center of our decisions.

If you stand for transportation equity, join other individuals and organizations around the state and endorse our Transportation Bill of Rights!

People’s needs too often get left out of the planning, funding, construction, and maintenance of transportation systems. This is why we have worked together to create a Transportation Bill of Rights. Regardless of our race, age, gender, disability, income and where we live we all deserve transportation where:

1. No one dies or is seriously injured traveling on state roads, streets, and sidewalks
2. Every household can access groceries within 20 minutes without a car
3. No one today is harmed by pollution or noise from transportation
4. Protection from the climate crisis today for future generations
5. All trips less than one mile are easily and enjoyably achieved by non-vehicle travel including for people with disabilities
6. No household should spend more than 45% of its income on housing, transportation, and energy
7. Every child who wants to can bike, walk, or roll safely to school
8. Transit service is frequent and spans the day and night so people can get to work and come back
9. The pursuit of happiness does not require a car

Legislators must take these rights into consideration when developing transportation policy – whether they’re locking us into another decade-plus package or deliberating on how to spend the billions in Federal funding headed toward Washington State as part of the recently-passed infrastructure package.

If they ignore these rights, we’ll witness a business-as-usual process marked by outcomes that include new highways keeping us hooked on our fossil fuels addiction. If they honor these rights, we can create transportation equity and access for all.

Thank you for your advocacy and support!
