Columbus, OH — Community members from across Ohio and national civil rights groups tonight are joining elected officials and policy experts in a town hall-style discussion about how federal transportation policies and investments can better advance economic and social equity in the state.

Hosting organizations include All Aboard Ohio, Amalgamated Transit Union, The Amos Project, The Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity, The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, Ohio BlueGreen Alliance, The Ohio Commission on African-American Males, Ohio Environmental Council, Ohio Higher Education Rail Network Institute, Ohio Olmstead Taskforce, Ohio Statewide Independent Living Council, PolicyLink, Policy Matters Ohio, ProgressOhio, and Transport Workers Union of America, AFL-CIO.
