Adam Armstrong has been leading the charge on behalf of Red Hook to fight for clean air and clean electric non-polluting technologies in our transportation systems. He will be joining the panel on Monday Sept 24th with the New York League of Conservation Voters, to push for electrifying our school bus fleets.

They’re big, they’re yellow and they’re polluting our air. School buses are the largest form of mass transit in the United States, and they desperately need an upgrade. Emissions from diesel school buses are linked to asthma, chronic respiratory and cardiovascular illnesses, cancers, and even higher mortality rates. No one should have to breathe in dangerous pollutants while riding the bus, especially when cleaner, safer alternatives, such as all-electric school buses, are available.

Join us at our town hall as we head back to school and learn about the need for better busing from our diverse panel of speakers. We’re bringing together experts and local activists to discuss the impact of diesel school buses and explore pathways to going electric.
