Transportation is a crucial link to ensuring opportunity for all — connecting us to jobs, schools, housing, health care, and grocery stores. But millions of people live in communities where quality transportation options are unaffordable, unreliable, or nonexistent. 

Federal transportation policy choices — what we build, where we put it, who builds it, how we operate it, what energy powers it — have an enormous impact on our economy, our climate, and our health. We must invest in a manner that builds a nation where all people can participate and prosper.

The Transportation Equity Caucus — formed by the nation’s leading civil rights, community development, disability, racial justice, economic justice, faith-based, health, housing, labor, environmental justice, tribal, public interest, women’s groups and transportation organizations — drives transportation policies that advance racial, economic and social equity in America.

We work collaboratively to transform the transportation systems in Black, Indigenous, and communities of color, low-income communities, and other marginalized communities through research, advocacy, and communications strategies.
