Join Smart Growth California for a funder-only webinar on lessons learned and opportunities ahead for the implementation of SB 1, a new bill that will transform transportation infrastructure in California.

SB 1, the Road Repair and Accountability Act of 2017, was signed into law on April 28, 2017. This legislative package invests $54 billion over the next decade to fix roads, freeways, and bridges, as well as public transportation, walking, and bicycling infrastructure, in communities across California. Read the Los Angeles Times analysis of the transportation plan, as well as how it is accelerating Active Transportation Program allocations.
During the webinar, you will hear from statewide advocates who led the community effort in shaping SB 1 to represent the transit, equity, and climate needs of communities. Speakers will discuss: 

  • The importance of cross-sector organizing efforts and lessons learned by the coalition in both supporting and challenging SB 1
  • The big wins and areas for improvement to ensure equity is at the forefront of the implementation of SB 1
  • The long-game opportunities to shape transportation and equity work in California.
  • How funders can make a difference on an issue that will shape California's future and communities for decades to come



  • Chanell Fletcher, Director, ClimatePlan
  • Erika Rincón Whitcomb, Senior Associate, PolicyLink
  • Jared Sanchez, Policy Associate, California Bike Coalition


This webinar is organized for funders by Smart Growth California, a network of funders working

is an initiative of the Funders' Network for Smart Growth and Livable Communities (TFN).
