Every day, trucks, ships and trains carrying cargo to and from shipping ports in California, New Jersey, New York, Texas, and more spew deadly diesel emissions into vulnerable communities. This constant stream of pollution causes asthma, lung cancer, heart disease, stroke, and neurological disorders for those who live, work, or learn along these routes.
It doesn’t have to be this way. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has the power to end deadly diesel emissions. We call on the EPA to clean our air, protect our planet from global climate change and advance environmental justice by reducing air pollution and promoting zero emissions technologies at every port, rail yard, distribution center, and busy truck corridor across the country.
It’s time for Zero health risks and Zero emissions.
