COMMUNITY

We act towards justice by building relationships within our communities

and across lines of difference, developing our leaders' skills in the public arena,

and taking action on issues of common concern.

We're building relationships between those facing transportation challenges and regional power brokers, researching and developing innovative models for statewide transportation, and pushing for their implementation.

"Organizing is a magic, born of materials we all have:

stories, interest in others, being moved to action on behalf of relationships…

all these elements coming together deepens and enriches community."

 

- Martha Congdon, BIO President
