The Light Rail Lives!

This month we'll hear from Paul Bentz of High Ground, one the forces behind the Invest in PHX campaign which defeated Prop 105. We'll hear about how the campaign achieved record levels of engagement and marked a new era in Phoenix.

We'll discuss how his team coordinated the defeat of a nationally funded, targeted campaign to end our plans for strong transit infrastructure. And we'll examine motives behind the national effort to end public transportation.

Moving forward, it’ll be more important than ever to show up for quality, inclusive developments along transit corridors, especially in South Central. We'll hear from Shannon Scutari of South Central Collaborative, who will share how we can be allies in efforts to minimize displacement and gentrification in South Phoenix and other future light rail lines.

This mixer is perfect for you if you’re

  • an urbanist

  • a business owner along light rail, or would like to be

  • a development professional seeking transit adjacent projects
