Actualizing Equity in Transit: A Vision of Abundance
Historically in the Twin Cities, transit development has led to the systemic displacement of and under-investment in Black, Immigrant and local community members and businesses.
Blue Line Coalition is advocating for transformative shifts in transit development by leading with an abundance mindset. We know that community has the abundance of expertise to know the solutions for a successful transit line and corridor, and there is an abundance of resources to realize those solutions.
At the April Actualizing Equity event, the Blue Line Coalition will discuss: What elements compose such a vibrant community? And what it would take to materialize the collective outcomes our communities seek?
Convened by The Alliance, the Blue Line Coalition is rooted in the BIPOC and immigrant communities that will be most impacted by the Blue Line Light Rail Extension project. Since 2013, we have been working together to make sure government leaders recognize the Blue Line extension is a racial justice and regional equity issue and that community inclusion and leadership must be central to ALL planning and outcomes.
