Charge Ahead California
Every hour an unsavory deposit is trafficked into East Oakland, Southeast Los Angeles, and other low income communities of color: huge amounts of particulate matter from diesel trucking and toxics from fossil fuel burning automobiles. Highways and freight truck routes often congregate in our communities; this mobile pollution causes asthma, cancer, and other chronic diseases. According to the American Lung Association 19,000 Californians die annually from polluted air, much of which is emitted from tail pipes. Across the globe, tailpipe exhaust is also one of the major contributors to global warming.

CBE is one of the lead organizations that is working with a statewide coalition of environmental groups, Senator de León, other legislators, the Governor’s Office and the Air Resources Board to accelerate California’s transition out of this antiquated and destructive fossil fuel infrastructure. The Charge Ahead California Initiative intends to place one million electric vehicles on our state’s roads over the next 10 years. The projected reductions in air pollutants will improve public health for our communities and will be another step towards a sustainable energy future.
