Tuesday, April 23 – Transportation Choices Summit

Join leading community organizations and advocates in Sacramento and help ensure state policies and investments promote effective public transit, great walking and bicycling, and affordable homes. Together we will learn about the hottest issues from leaders like the Secretary of Business, Transportation and Housing Brian Kelly and Air Resources Board Chair Mary Nichols as well as leading advocates like James Corless of Transportation for America.

We will hone our skills and messages in breakout sessions, and there is time for networking with advocates from your area, and from across the state.   

Held in the beautiful Library Galleria in downtown Sacramento, the event will be followed by a reception. Legislative and agency leaders will be invited to network in a casual setting with summit attendees.

Join us before or after the Summit

Monday, April 22 – Mobile Tours and Networking

You’ll have a choice of journeys that explore old and new parts of Sacramento. See how the city is transforming its streets, providing new housing options and tackling tough issues from parking to regional transit. This is a great opportunity to get to know your colleagues from around the state.  After a break we’ll meet at 7 p.m. for a networking reception.

Wednesday, April 24 – Transportation Choices Advocacy Day

Join over 100 community and organizational representatives as we join together for a morning training then head to the State Capitol for Transportation Choices Advocacy Day.   We’ll let them know how urgent it is to include funding for transportation choices and affordable homes in the state’s cap-and-trade program and more.  With diverse voices we can ensure they prioritize a transportation system that provides access for all, protects our environment and is the cornerstone for sustainable, equitable communities.

The summit will help prepare you for the advocacy day, but it is also possible to just attend this April 24 event.

Lodging and travel scholarships for community advocates are made possible by the generosity of our sponsors.  Please consider sponsoring the event today.
