The Livingston County Transportation Coalition along with community partners LETS, Church and Society of First United Methodist Church of Brighton, Torch 180, Sierra Club Crossroads Group and Molina Healthcare of Michigan, are putting on the 2nd Annual Livingston County Rosa Parks Transit Equity Day Pancake Breakfast and Community Recognition this Friday, February 3 from 8am to 9:30am at Torch 180 in Fowlerville.
The Livingston County Transportation Coalition and its partners actively advocate for improved public transportation for all in and around Livingston County.
“Rosa Parks fought for her right to sit where she wanted on public transportation,” stated a release by the organization. “Today, we advocate for all public transportation riders and potential riders to have access to an expanded network that can get them to and from medical appointments, work, school, shopping, and recreation to bring together an inclusive society where we support efforts to help the elderly, less fortunate, disabled, and people without licenses.”
National Transit Equity Day is always February 4, Rosa Parks’ birthday, but this year Livingston County is observing it on Friday, February 3 with the Pancake Breakfast brought to you by Torch 180. All donated proceeds will go directly to Torch 180.
In addition to having a Pancake Breakfast and Community Recognition, they are going to have a table at the Livingston Link Up the night of Friday, February 3 from 4pm to 6:30pm and the Community Connect event the next day Saturday, February 4 from 10am to 1pm at 2/42 Community Church in Brighton.
