Coltura stands in solidarity with those working to dismantle the systems of oppression and racism that have burdened black and brown people for centuries.

How many gallons of gasoline are pumped in your city each year? Your city officials can’t tell you, because they don’t have the data. They don’t know which of their investments to reduce transportation emissions (such as EV charging infrastructure, public transit, e-bikes and e-scooters, EV ride & drives, and education campaigns) are having an impact on the city’s gasoline sales.They also don’t know which residents living near gas stations are exposed to the highest levels of carcinogenic benzene vapors.

Diesel trucks represent about 5% of all vehicles on the road, but more than 20% of all transportation emissions. The California Air Resources Board (CARB) is preparing to issue a regulation requiring medium and heavy-duty trucks to transition to zero-emission vehicles. As proposed, the Advanced Clean Trucks rule would have only resulted in 4% of trucks on the road being zero emissions by 2030. However, in response to community outcry, CARB is now looking to strengthen the rule.
