Working for Transportation Equity.
When inequities in transportation create barriers to opportunity, access, and full participation in the life of the community, people of faith must respond.
JOB is the local affiliate of national Gamaliel Network. One of their major projects is the Transportation Equity Network (TEN), a grassroots network of more than 350 community organizations in 41 states working for a more just, prosperous, and connected America though equity in transportation policy and funding.
TEN seeks to meet the challenges of current crises in the economy, energy security and climate change by building healthy, equitable communities and providing equal public transportation access to all.
TEN's goals include:
- More transportation-related jobs for disadvantaged people
- Increased funding for mass transit
- Greater community participation in transportation planning and funding
- Growth that is smart and equitable, serving the needs of the poor, the working class, the middle class and people of color.
