At the beginning of the COVID pandemic, Solutionary Rail held a Conversation on the Future of Trucking, with Dr. Steve Viscelli. Now we're following up on that Conversation with a Part II, focusing on Trucking and the Public Interest.
Monday, June 22, 2020
Time: 12:30 PACIFIC/3:30 EASTERN
Our Conversation with Dr. Viscelli in March helped us understand the vision that is being pushed by corporate interests in terms of freight movement. The advocates of that vision seem agnostic at best and at worst antagonistic to the public impact/good and progressive policy.
There's far too little conversation about the public interests related to freight transport and the role of long haul trucking vs trains. As a movement of movements, we lack an adequate critique and alternate vision to formulate strategies and demands that address the threats or steer the public debate about the future of freight transportation. Now is the time to remedy this deficit and align our visions and demands.
Please join us for this strategic conversation, so that we can continue learning together.
Joining Steve will be SR Coalition Partners, including Andrea Vidaurre of Center for Community Action and Environmental Justice (CCAEJ), Roberto Clack from Warehouse Workers for Justice (WW4J), whose work focuses on economic and environmental justice issues, Ron Kaminkow of Railroad Workers United (RWU), and others.
RSVP below and the Zoom link for joining will be emailed to you.
PLEASE NOTE: THE START TIME FOR THIS IS 12:30 PACIFIC - 1:30 MOUNTAIN - 2:30 CENTRAL - 3:30 EASTERN.
