This spring, The Parents’ Climate Community will continue to work with Rethink35 to halt the I-35 expansion through Austin for our kids’ sake. We know that traffic pollution from I-35 is already worsening respiratory illness for children who live or attend school near the highway. And in a crucial decade for climate action, we need to restore kids’ faith in adults by rejecting carbon infrastructure in favor of sustainable alternatives.
What can you do to help? Here are 4 easy actions you can take to advocate for Austin kids’ health:
- Learn more. Register for our free, online webinar with local health experts on Tuesday, March 7th 11 am – noon.
- Spread awareness. Share this fact sheet with your PTA, homeschool, or daycare list. Make sure to copy us at hello [at] parentsclimatecommunity [dot] org so we can track outreach.
- Take action! Sign the Rethink35 petition.
- Share your story. We recently won an international grant to create a video amplifying caregiver voices on I-35. If you have a story to share, please reach out to hello [at] parentsclimatecommunity [dot] org
