21st Century Transportation

We’re running campaigns that put us on the road to meeting America’s changing transportation needs.

21st Century Transportation

Demand for transportation alternatives is skyrocketing, and our roads and bridges are crumbling. Yet instead of meeting our changing transportation needs, our state budget continues to funnel billions of dollars into shortsighted new highway projects.

Ban Bee-Killing Pesticides

Millions of bees are dying at unprecedented rates, with real consequences for our food supply, environment and economy. We rely on bees to pollinate everything from broccoli to strawberries to the alfalfa used to feed dairy cows. Simply put, no bees means no food. Given what’s at stake, we must do more to stop the bee die-offs and help them rebound.

Bottoms up

Most of us take it for granted that the food and drinks we buy from the store are not putting our health at risk.

However, new research from public health groups and scientists from the past several years indicates that food and drinks are contaminated with glyphosate, the main ingredient in the weed killer Roundup. This is a potential health problem because in 2015 the World Health Organization found that glyphosate is a probable carcinogen. In 2017, the state of California also decided to list glyphosate as a probable carcinogen.
