Transit, bicycling, and walking are under attack this legislative session. Volunteer at an upcoming Transportation Forward phone bank to fight back. Help mobilize support for transportation options that meet the needs of all Minnesotans.

A brief training and free pizza will be provided. You will be calling our supporter lists and connecting people with their elected officials. These phone banks are designed to be as easy as possible, with an auto-dialer and patch-through messages.

This is a simple way to spend a couple of hours making a difference. If you can help, please sign up to volunteer on the Transportation Forward website or contact Andrea Kiepe, Lead Organizer, at 651-789-1406 or andreak@tlcminnesota.org.
