Metropolitan Organizing Strategy for Enabling Strength (MOSES) wants more
of our tax money to go into busses and public transit and less to new
highways and widening roads paving the way for sprawl. MOSES is a
faith-based coalition of 53 urban and suburban churches in the Southeast
Michigan area organized to fight sprawl and revitalize the urban center of
Metro Detroit. 

MOSES and TRU [ Transportation Riders United} invite you to come to a
public meeting on Transportation this Thursday July 29th at 7:00 pm at St.
James Catholic Church in Ferndale, Michigan to demand better public
transportation. The church is on the west side of Woodward Avenue between 8
and 9 mile roads. Be part of a watershed event with more than 400 people
expected.

Public officials such as the directors of SMART and DDOT along with
suburban mayors, state representitives and Mrs. Debby Dingell of General
Motors will be there. The more people that come, the more powerful and
productive the meeting.

The Governor's Relative Risk Study determined that land use, energy use,
and transportation were the three major threats to the Michigan
Environment. All three can be addressed through the development of a strong
regional vision for public transportation. Money is available to move
towards better public transportation and reduce our reliance on the single
occupant automobile, but the public needs to demand this money. Better
Public transportation is an essential part of improving environmental
quality in Michigan. Come to this meeting.
