Living Change Podcast: Transit, Democracy, and Coalition Building

Delegate Robbyn Lewis joined Andrea Learned to talk about how improving transit is absolutely a social justice issue. Delegate Lewis makes a great case for really understanding the tools of community engagement and coalition building.

“You know, it’s all connected. Fixing public transit is one of the most powerful ways that we can create a just society, repair the harm of white supremacy and racism of the past.

How do we make the sort of shifts in land use, built environment, health delivery right? That will deliver the greatest benefit for the population.”
