Faced with devastating cuts to the transit service on which essential workers and many people with low incomes depend, local advocates from around the country came together to build a national infrastructure that secured billions in federal COVID-19 relief funding. Along the way, they changed the nature of the transit conversation in Congress to one that centers riders instead of the traditionally dominant voices of big agencies, big labor, big green and big construction interests. A set of transit justice principles, created by the network, guide the work.
Join us at 11 a.m. PST, March 2 as funders and organizers share stories about what they are doing and learning, and what comes next.
The lessons learned about power building, organizing and networking are relevant to anyone interested in systems change and rebooting conversations. The call is organized by the Mobility and Access Collaborative, a TFN initiative.
