    3 additional Stops

    It was 3 stops and not just 2. This was a major victory for the environmental justice communities on East University Avenue – historic Rondo and Asian residents and business owners. They formed the Stops for Us Coalition who received the National Achievement for Environmental Justice from the EPA in 2010 http://www.epa.gov/compliance/environmentaljustice/resources/publications/awards/2010/trans-equity.pdf

    This organizing effort also changed federal policy on how all federal New Starts project are evaluated and was recognized by Peter Rogoff, FTA administrator in his acceptance speech for the TEN Rosa Parks Award http://www.metrostability.org/campaigns/article.php?sid=Transit_Equity

    The community came together to write their own story on this important organizing campaign “Stops for Us! Organizing for Equity Along the Central Corridor” http://www.metrostability.org/efiles/stopsforus_final.pdf

    Its an important story should be told right!
