TEN's Executive Director Laura Barrett, writing for Shelterforce Magazine's Rooflines blog, discusses the powerful economic impact of community organizing the implications of Gamaliel's latest study Community Organizing As Job Creator.
A new study - the first ever using economic theory and government formulas to evaluate community organizing - shows community organizing is stunningly effective as a jobs creator and economic stimulus.
TEN has joined forces with a powerful new coalition called Refund Transit that's working to pressure big banks into renogogiating toxic pre-recession bank deals with some of the nation's biggest transit agencies. A new report details hundreds of millions currently being lost to toxic deals.
A new report from the American Association of People with Disabilities finds that 560,000 people with disabilities never leave their homes due to transportation difficulties. The report demonstrates the growing difficulties faced by disabled Americans and offers hope in the form of recommendations for the upcoming transportation reauthorization.
At TEN, what motivates us to keep fighting for equitable transportation? People like Stuart and Dianne Falk, both wheelchair-bound, who lost access to transit in a 2009 funding cut. Thanks to the work of TEN affiliate MCU, service was later restored.
Transportation equity is about building a more just, prosperous, and connected America. The Falks' story illustrates what's at stake.
