The CORE Transportation Equity Work Group works to bring equity to the Sacramento area transit system through examining transportation policy at the local, regional, and state level; assessing current regional policies as well as the distribution of transportation funding and the resulting effects on low-income communities.
The CORE Sustainable Communities Work Group is focused on implementation of Senate Bill 375 and ensuring that the Sacramento region is a region with transportation and housing affordable to everyone, with reduced commute times, more jobs closer to home, and preserved natural resources.
Values and Vision
CORE works to increase the influence and power of lower income communities and communities of color in public policy and regional planning. CORE focuses on the linkage between health and the built environment, and how factors such as land use, food and habitat shape our communities. The coalition builds power by uniting sectors around a shared agenda for environmental, economic, and social justice. This shared vision enables CORE to hold decision makers accountable to lower income communities and communities of color in the region.
