Metro Advocacy/Better Buses for LA Meeting

This year Metro will adopt a $8 billion dollar budget for FY2022, an increase of almost $2 billion from last year’s budget!

This is a massive budget that is tricky to make sense of, and there is a limited timeline for public review and input. Therefore, Investing in Place has been holding a series of work group meetings during May for interested organizers, advocates and community members, with a goal of creating an opportunity to share information and collaborate on organizing ideas and strategies.

Join us, where we discuss the public works and transportation budgets, and advocate for a budget that centers equity and racial justice. For more information, please email

RSVP here for a calendar invite.
