The City of La Crosse MTU would like to invite you to participate in Transit Equity Day on Thursday February 4th, 2021.
For the past four years on February 4, a network of transit rider unions, community organizations, environmental groups and labor unions have organized Transit Equity Day–a national day of action to commemorate the birthday of Rosa Parks by declaring that public transit is a civil right. Rosa is an iconic figure of the civil rights era who chose the tactic of refusing to give up her seat on the bus to demand an end to segregation in the Montgomery, Alabama, transit system. We make the connection to this act of resistance to highlight the rights of all people to high-quality public transportation run on clean/renewable energy.
The MTU will Honor Rosa Parks by reserving one seat on each bus by placing the poster shown (left) along with a single rose.
