Transportation Equity Event
Sponsored by T4American and a broad range of organizations:
Transportation is crucial to ensuring opportunity for all - connecting us to jobs, schools, housing, healthcare, and grocery stores. But millions of working families and people of color live in communities where quality transportation options are unaffordable, unreliable, or nonexistent.
The type of transportation system we build, where we put it, who builds it, and how we
operate it have an enormous impact on our economy, our climate and our health.
To learn more about these issues and what we can do about it, we invite you to a box lunch event:

I would like to come and also lend my DVD of Ray Bradbury's The Pedestrian to Steph Routh, and bring my Bike/ Pedestrian Pole to be signed.
