TransForm’s Executive Director, Darnell Grisby, released the following statement on the results of the November 3, 2020 General Election.
“The vote count of suburbs and cities around America point to the dawn of a new American century where a multi-racial majority can create equitable economic growth that leads us out of the COVID recession, breaks down systemic racism, and addresses the climate crisis.
“With probable political deadlock in Washington, the Bay Area and California will provide leadership for the rest of the nation. We are the region with the capacity to develop an innovative, equitable ballot initiative to fund transit; establish partnerships with private mobility providers to promote mobility justice; provide safe spaces for all users of our streets, while fighting urban sprawl and greenhouse gas emissions. To win, we must first come together as a region and center justice at the core of all of our actions.”
