Lindsey Port on climate change and a just transition to 100% clean energy:
“Climate change is the most critical issue facing humanity, and we must act decisively and quickly to protect our planet.
“Low-income people use public transit at a disproportionate rate to the rest of the population. I believe public transit should be free for all who ride it. I also believe that we should have an equitable focus on climate change solutions, and should prioritize programs like community solar gardens in areas that have previously borne the burden of pollution in our state.”
