Building Authentic Community Engagement from an Equity Perspective

February 4 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST

Building equitable transit is predicated on creating and sustaining authentic community engagement. How do you give voice to those who have not traditionally had a voice in transit decision-making, and how do you engage the most vulnerable populations in an intentional and effective way?
Hear from representatives from LA Metro and APTA’s 2022 local coalition grant winners in Michigan and Rhode Island in an engaging conversation.
