Digital Discussion: A History of Social Action in Transit
Tuesday, February 22, 2022
Free Online Program
Mass transportation has the ability to act as a great equalizer for the diverse population of New York City, and public transit has been used as a vehicle for social action throughout history. When faced with unsafe working conditions, unfair pay, or unequal opportunities and treatment, citizens have banded together and taken action to create safe and equitable work and travel for both transit employees and passengers.
Join Education Coordinator Marie Fazio for a digital discussion to explore the history of social movements and political activism connected to New York City Transit. Learn about labor strikes and civil rights movements led by New Yorkers to improve the lives of their communities.
