As a city and state, we are in urgent need of major investments in improving and expanding public transit. Transit is a critical issue for our city and state in the following areas: 1) job creation, job access, climate action, public health and racial and economic justice. We are organizing this forum to secure concrete commitments on support for our public transit systems from the leading mayoral candidates on critical priorities for workers and riders, and other stakeholders.
Chicago Jobs with Justice is a 501c3 non-partisan non-profit hosting this forum. We neither endorse or oppose candidates, nor coordinate activities with candidates, parties, or committees. Our purpose with this forum is to inform and engage the public, transit riders and transit workers on the issues broadly and to advocate transit-related policies that can improve the lives and opportunities for working people.
