MFN members meet US EPA Administrator McCarthy


On April 5th fourteen Moving Forward Network members from across the country met with US EPA Administrator McCarthy in Washington, D.C. These members came from Southern California, the Bay Area, Houston Texas, Kansas City, Kansas, Charleston, South Carolina, Tallahassee, Florida and New Jersey. Each of their communities is negatively impacted by freight facilities such as sea ports, truck corridors, rail yards, logistic centers or a combination of these. Freight operations emit deadly diesel exhaust that destroys the health of exposed communities while also contributing to global climate change. Working with the US Environmental Protection Agency has been a challenge. However, with the leadership of Administrator Gina McCarthy we are making some progress and expect to have a good outcome.
