Eventbrite says
A clean and healthy future is possible! At this community meeting, we will learn from organizer Jesse Marquez who helped create a roadmap for zero emissions at the Ports of Long Beach and LA to help residents near the ports breathe a little easier and find economic growth alongside technological innovation.

Learn about what WE can do to help support the health of our Houston area communities and contribute to economic prosperity.

Why Zero Emissions?
Diesel emissions are linked to many health conditions, including asthma and other respiratory disorders, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's, and even cancer.
According to the Clean Air Task Force, diesel causes for adults in Texas:
869 Premature Deaths
759 Non-Fatal Heart Attacks
155,793 Work Loss Days (WLD)
906,678 Minor Restricted Activity Days (MRAD)

And for children:
941 Asthma ER Visits
1,912 Acute Bronchitis
24,541 Lower Respiratory Symptoms
18,761 Upper Respiratory Symptoms
40,894 Asthma Exacerbation

The total monetized value of health impacts is $7.6 Billion.

Come learn what we can do about it.
