We are in the midst of an unprecedented global crisis. Just within the state of California, COVID 19 has claimed over 300 lives with over 13,000 confirmed cases and counting, a disproportionate amount of which are people of color. Entire communities, businesses, and economies are being impacted while frontline and “essential” workers are putting their lives on the line to keep people safe, healthy, and fed. A key but often overlooked segment of the essential worker population includes transit workers along with many of the frontline workers they help get to work every day. Join us for a conversation around the various initiatives mobility justice advocates are urging California to take on and how you can contribute to ensuring truly all of its residents are safe and protected in this time of crisis.
