Transportation For America Logo

We want to invite you to a special local event on transportation and equity near you in Portland, Oregon on Wednesday April 6.
Transportation is crucial to ensuring opportunity for all – connecting us to jobs, schools, housing, healthcare, and grocery stores. But millions of working families and people of color live in communities where quality transportation options are unaffordable, unreliable, or nonexistent.
The type of transportation system we build, where we put it, who builds it, and how we operate it have an enormous impact on our economy, our climate and our health.
To learn more about these issues and what we can do about it, we invite you to a box lunch event in Portland on Wednesday, April 6 from 11:30 to 2:00 p.m.
