Description: Infrastructure can be a powerful connector in a community, but unfortunately, it has been used to divide America in the past. Access to good infrastructure is far from equitable across the U.S. The next infrastructure plan from Washington needs to acknowledge how intentional equitable approaches to transportation, broadband access, clean water, and workforce training can make a difference in rebuilding the places we call “home.” Join America’s local leaders as we share our work to rebuild and our goals for Washington to bring forward a bipartisan infrastructure package that reaches everyone nationwide.
