Suhali Méndez, Policy and Legislative coordinator at NYLPI, and Maria Torres, president and chief operating officer at The POINT CDC, penned an op-ed about the possibilities of Proposition 1, the Clean Air, Clean Water and Green Jobs Environmental Bond Act, which is up for a vote this Election Day.

“As Bronx-born mothers and advocates for children with disabilities, we’ve experienced firsthand how unhealthy, stressful and dysfunctional our school transportation system can be.

But there’s good news: voters in New York state now have the chance to help our schools replace more than 45,000 thousand diesel and gas school buses with modern, clean all-electric buses as part of the Clean Air, Clean Water and Green Jobs Environmental Bond Act that will be on ballots for this upcoming election in November.”
