Congestion Pricing is Coming to New York City – Is it fair? Will it Work?

The long-awaited and hard fought congestion pricing policy is here. Although the measure is going into effect in 2021, many are questioning its fairness while others are touting its prospects for ushering in a new era of urban sustainability. Join us for a lively discussion of the potential challenges facing the first experiment of its kind in the United States.

Our panelists include Bhairavi Desai from the New York Taxi Workers Alliance, Dr. Jonas Shaende, Chief Economist at the Fiscal Policy Institute, Dr. Marty Rowland of the Henry George School, and Ben Schulman, Director of The Newburgh Packet. The panel presentations will be followed by a community Q&A.

Location: 149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016
Time: 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
