Our emphasis is on the ways that advancing civil rights claims can result in stronger federal investments in our most burdened communities; therefore, this meeting will be useful for advocates from all sectors, including community groups, labor groups, and city and local electeds, staff, and commissioners from around the Bay. Stakeholders and decision makers with an interest in transit justice are particularly encouraged to attend, but community advocates from across all issues areas impacted by federal investment will find the information shared in this meeting relevant to their campaigns.
