The roads we drive on and the buses we take to work are an essential part of our daily lives. Every person, documented or undocumented, with or without disabilities, rich or poor, deserves a chance to get to work, school, worship, recreation and health care.
Politicians have chronically underfunded public transportation and even local street and road repair, in favor of massive, expensive, environmentally unsound freeway projects. They have denied drivers’ licenses to undocumented workers, many of whom have been designated “essential workers.”
By joining together white and Black, Indigenous or newcomer, from farms to cities, we can demand investment in public transportation for our families and for generations to come.
