At the beginning of December, Sustain Charlotte joined eight local organizations in signing a letter organized by the Southern Environmental Law Center urging North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper and state Department of Transportation leadership to prioritize transportation investments that reduce single-occupancy driving rather than building and expanding highways.

The purpose of the letter was to offer thanks for all the work Cooper’s administration is doing to reduce climate-changing emissions from the
the transportation sector in North Carolina and to suggest some additional discrete items the administration should pursue to further this work.
