8/21/2014 - 9/1/2014, 09:00AM - 07:30PM: Transportation on a Stick: Volunteer with TLC and Move MN at the State Fair

TLC and our Move MN allies are headed to the State Fair this month to spread the word about urgent transportation needs in our state—and we need your help!

Volunteer with us for a few hours and we'll be happy to return the favor with free fair admission and a Move MN t-shirt!

Volunteering involves talking to fairgoers and asking them to sign postcards in support of transportation funding. This is a fun, easy way to make a difference, meet other volunteers, and enjoy the Great Minnesota Get-Together at the same time. We'll provide training and make sure you have everything you need.

Sign up to volunteer below! We're looking for help every day of the fair, Aug. 21-Sept. 1. There are three shifts each day: 9 AM–12:30 PM, 12:30 PM–4 PM, and 4 PM–7:30 PM. Claim your ideal shift now--these are first-come, first-served. 
 
Questions? Please contact Bethany at bethanyw@tlcminnesota.org or 651-789-1406.

And big thanks to our friends at AFSCME Council 5 for sharing their booth with us this year!

Update: All of our volunteer shifts have been filled. Stop by to say hellowe'll look forward to seeing you at the fair!

9/16/2014, 09:00AM - 05:00PM: Transportation Options Workshop

"Transportation is definitely a critical point in breaking the cycle of poverty." - Joan McDonough-Schlecht, Neighborhood House

"There is no program I know of that addresses financial benefits of transportation so directly." - Eva Song Margolis, Eastside Financial Center

TLC’s Transportation Options Workshop offers social service and financial coaching staff the resources and experience they need to empower their participants to address the high cost of getting around, to save money, and to build wealth.

The one-day workshop immerses attendees into the realities, barriers, and solutions to finding affordable, convenient, and reliable transportation in order to access jobs, education, and financial stability.

We’ll discuss the asset-building potential of options like biking, walking, transit, car sharing, and bike sharing and help to decipher when and where they make sense for families and individuals working toward economic self-sufficiency.

Inside the Workshop:

  • Uncover the true cost of transportation
  • Experience firsthand new options for getting around
  • Understand a network of solutions and support
  • Apply what you’ve learned with real-life examples

RSVPs are required. Fee to attend: $20.
