Equity in transportation in the United States has a strong influence in American society long before Rosa Parks iconic ‘good trouble’ when she was arrested for standing her ground on a Montgomery, Alabama bus in 1955. Her opposition to the city ordinance which required her to give up her seat to a white passenger encapsulated more than civil rights, but also dignity, access, labor rights, and social mobility.
Join us on Thursday 15, February 2024, beginning at 7 pm to discuss today’s bus system, the inequities and Jim Crow policies that impeded the growth of a robust public transportation network, programs that can help to right-fit transportation in your communities, and funding sources that can be used.
