Bringing an Equity Perspective to Infrastructure Week
The Transportation Equity Caucus is excited to announce its involvement in the third annual 2015 Infrastructure Week, which will bring together thousands of stakeholders to discuss the critical importance of investing in and modernizing America’s infrastructure systems. Infrastructure Week, taking place this May 11-15, provides a bipartisan and national platform to elevate issues related to transportation access and investment. The Transportation Equity Caucus, co-chaired by PolicyLink and the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, has signed-on as a partner to help raise awareness of strategies for advancing transportation investments that benefit low-income people, communities of color, and people with disabilities.
During Infrastructure Week, there will be many events taking place in DC and around the country. Several of the events allow for participation via online streaming, see the Infrastructure Week website to sign up. Advocates are encouraged to participate in these events and share an equity perspective. Also, participate in Infrastructure week on social media using the hashtags #transportationequity and #RebuildRenew.
