National Movement Building

As part of our participation with Transit Riders for Public Transportation, we sent representatives to coalition meetings and took part in a National Organizer’s Exchange for transit justice organizers. We also participated in coordinated education campaigns and generated phone calls to Congress and President Obama. Through this campaign were able to pass a resolution through our City Council calling on Congress to increase funding for national transit operations and reject some of the more harmful aspects of the federal proposals, including streamlining environmental review processes and creating a backdoor for the Keystone XL pipeline.
