Hosted by the SOCAN-Ashland Climate Action Project
Thursday, February 4, 7-8:30pm via zoom
Show your strong support for clean and equitable public transit for all by joining us for Transit Equity Day at 7pm on February 4. Held annually on Rosa Parks’ birthday, Transit Equity Day highlights the rights of all people to high-quality public transportation run on clean renewable energy. We’ll honor the courage of Ms. Parks and the 40,000+ Americans who participated in the 1955 Montgomery bus boycott by exploring the state of transit equity in Oregon and the Rogue Valley. Do our transit systems support equity in the rights of all to access employment, education, medical services, and groceries? Do they protect public health by minimizing pollution and greenhouse gas emissions? What progress can we take pride in, what should we look forward to, and what can we all do to create a more equitable and cleaner transit future for Oregon and the Rogue Valley?
The program will be moderated by Tonia Moro, Chair of the Rogue Valley Transportation District Board. Panelists include RVTD rider Stacy Matern; Linda Peterson Adams, Chair, City of Ashland Transportation Commission; Sara Wright, Transportation Program Director for Oregon Environmental Council; Paige West, Associate Planner, RVTD; Karyn C. Criswell, ODOT Public Transportation Division Administrator; and Amanda Peitz, Manager, ODOT Climate Office.
