What is the Coalition for Quality Transit?

The Coalition for Quality Transit is a broad-based group from every corner of New Orleans, all working to give New Orleans residents the world-class transit we deserve. The Coalition includes transit riders, supporters, businesses, affordable housing advocates, public health leaders, environmental stewards, and community leaders. We are working together to strengthen New Orleans transit, to reduce congestion and pollution, improve mobility, bolster economic growth, and increase access to opportunity for all New Orleanians.

The Coalition for Quality Transit is fueled by RIDE New Orleans, but the ideas – summarized in the report to be released next Tuesday – are driven by its members.

Working in partnership with the community, as well as city and transit officials, we’ll be showing the broad support for more frequent, reliable service, better amenities, safer conditions, and many other important aspects of world-class transit.

Every additional resident who attends next Tuesday helps us better show this broad support.

Please RSVP to let us know you can come!

Featuring…

Sweet snacks, goodies and snoballs
A celebration of the new transit service improvements
Decorate a bus with your ideas for quality transit and a #sweetride

In addition, you’ll get to meet our new Executive Director, Alex Posorke. I’ll be telling you more about Alex later this week, but please make some time on your calendar to come out and see him next Tuesday.

Thanks for all of your support,

Jackie Dadakis

Planned Parenthood’s Lobby Day, April 21st

Dear ,

REGISTER NOW! ONLY ONE WEEK LEFT! JOIN US FOR PLANNED PARENTHOOD’S LOBBY DAY!

The 2016 Louisiana Legislative Session is underway. Already, we have seen dangerous bills restricting health care access work their way through the legislature. We can’t let this go by unnoticed, as some politicians are still not focusing on the real issues in our State but instead are focusing on limiting access to health care and attacks on Planned Parenthood.

We need you now more than ever.

On Thursday, April 21, 2016, Planned Parenthood is having our annual Lobby Day at the Capitol in Baton Rouge. This will be an opportunity for you to speak with Legislators, attend committee hearings and advocate on behalf of the women, men, adolescents, and families who deserve access to health care and health education.

Please register today at http://www.standwithlouisianawomen.org and join us on Thursday, April 21, 2016.

If you have additional questions please email us at lapublicaffairs@ppgulfcoast.org.
Sincerely,

raegan carter sig b.jpg

Raegan A. Carter
Senior Director of Public Affairs and Government Relations-Louisiana
