Community Engagement Team

The Corridors of Opportunity Community Engagement Team (CET) is led by the Alliance for Metropolitan Stability, the Minnesota Center for Neighborhood Organizing and Nexus Community Partners

The CET’s goal is to transform community engagement in the Twin Cities region so that all residents — particularly underrepresented and marginalized communities (low-income, communities of color, immigrant communities, persons with disabilities) — are empowered and equipped to participate in transitway planning. The CET manages a community engagement and outreach grant making process and has established a steering committee of community leaders whose goals are to ensure that underrepresented communities are a powerful voice in creating an equitable regional transit system.
