The Institute for Policy Studies joins several co-sponsors for Transit Equity Day, a collaborative effort of several organizations and unions to promote public transit as a civil right and a strategy to combat climate change.
A main goal of Transit Equity Day is to support the efforts of many people who are already working to support public transit in their communities. Thousands of people in the U.S. are already organizing campaigns through their unions and organizations. We would love to highlight your work and connect it to the broader network of activities on February 5, 2018. Please email us at TransitEquityDay@labor4sustainability.org or call Michael Leon Guerrero, Labor Network for Sustainability (424) 243-6543 for more information. Here are some ideas of activities you can organize on Transit Equity Day whether you are part of an existing campaign or not:
