According to yesterday's front page article in the Star Tribune, NOC's Campaign for Transit Equity is already changing public awareness of the need for a fair share of transit infrastructure on the Northside.
A new report shows that hundreds of bus stops are without adequate shelter, with most of the unprotected stops located in already under-resourced communities of color. According to NOC transit organizer Michael McDowell, who is quoted in the article, “'I’ve stood in negative 30 degree weather with windchill,” he said. “I can’t imagine a mother and children doing that.”"
We are changing the conversation about transit in our communities because of the amazing work of our members and leaders. If you would like to become part of the Campaign for Transit Equity, please contact NOC organizer Michael McDowell at Michael@mnnoc.org.
