Public Transit–Public Good at the State House, Nov. 27

Posted November 19th, 2012 by Joel and filed in Advocacy, Healthy Dorchester, Move Dorchester, News

2013 promises to be a decisive year for transit funding. Thanks to the leadership of riders, advocates, our legislature and the administration, transit has come to the forefront of next year’s session. Please show your support again on November 27 and 29! Spread the word out the Invitation to Public Transit Report Release and Department of Transportation Hearing flyer.

Public Transit-Public Good, a campaign of the Green Justice Coalition, is a statewide partnership that has brought together hundreds of riders and workers to push for a more equitable, sustainable and well-funded transit system in our Commonwealth.  We believe an investment in public transit – and the infrastructure that supports it – will grow our state economy and slash greenhouse gas emissions while increasing access to work, educational, civic and social opportunities across region, class and race.

We are excited to put forth our ideas for solutions to the transit puzzle in our new report, “Route to Our Future: Transit Solutions for Equity, Sustainability, and Economic Growth in the Commonwealth”. Please join the Green Justice Coalition on November 27th at 10AM for a first look at the report.

WHAT: Policy Briefing and Report Release
WHEN: TUESDAY, NOV 27th AT 10AM
WHO: Public Transit-Public Good Campaign; transit riders, workers and community leaders from across the state.
WHERE:  MA State House, Room 437

We would be honored by your attendance and look forward to working together towards a more expansive, accessible and effective transit system across our Commonwealth. Please RSVP to: diana@massclu.org or 617-723-2639.
