The coalition meeting on August 10th met both online and in person at Aztlan Recreation Center in Sunnyside! We were joined by Dance with Joy, RTD and community members to talk free transit, Park(ing) day and do a design your own Parklet activity. We we're excited to offer a hybrid option for the Coalition, and unfortunately because of an issue with Zoom our meeting was cut short, but we learned about our hybrid mode and had some fun along the way!
Joy from Dance with Joy kicked off the meeting with a beautiful dance routine and an encouraging talk about joy and movement. Then Brandon from RTD joined our meeting and gave us the lowdown on RTDs month long "Zero Fare for Better Air" initiative, which makes all forms of RTD Transit FREE for the month of August!! Stay connected to upcoming Free Transit Events throughout the month of August HERE.
We then launched into a Park(ing) Day inspired design activity, where we encouraged coalition members to design their own parklets!
