It’s not often that we get an opportunity to lift our community’s voices to folks that are working together across the aisle for positive change statewide. More bridges create stronger communities!

Last night newly minted transportation advocates met with PBOT to find solutions to the dangerous conditions on SE 174th Ave. We were excited to help make it happen and will continue to work with them until every user of 174th feels safe.
We will be at Nadaka this Saturday, join us!!
Part of our mission is to empower the community to advocate for the change they want and need. Our Director of Transportation Equity is doing just that. One example is the work he is doing with residents along SE 174th Ave.
