CAC GearUpFlyer

A pdf of the above flyer is can be found here.

Do you live close to a bus lot? Do you have trucks that run their engines and speed in your neighborhood? Are you worried about your kids playing close to a busy intersection or train tracks? Do your kids and neighbors have asthma? Upset about all the potholes in your neighborhood?

Folks who sign up will:

  • Meet others from across the city who are struggling with similar problems
  • Identify the impacts of living in a neighborhood with trucks, trains and buses
  • Think critically about why transportation hubs are located in our neighborhoods
  • Identify the people who make decisions about transportation hubs
  • Identify solutions and plan for ACTION!

At the end of the class you’ll be ready to meet with elected officials, talk with the media, and build a strong movement to protect your neighborhood from toxic fumes and convince those in power to invest in your community.

The training is once a month from January til June from 5:30 – 7:30 at Primeria Igelsia, Unida Metodista, 62 Virginia Street. The training dates are:

  • January 15
  • February 19
  • March 19
  • April 16
  • May 21
  • June 18 – (Graduation!)

Children are welcome and snacks will be provided. Interested in joining? Contact Natasha at 852-3813 or Natasha@cacwny.org
