Join Transit for Livable Communities (TLC) at the Great Minnesota Get Together this August! TLC will again have a big presence to share our work of creating a more balanced transportation system. We’ll highlight both our Bike Walk Twin Cities activities as well as our advocacy work for resources and policies. We will have a substantial TLC booth in the Education Building (“Focus on a Better Future”), and will partner with other organizations for the sustainable transportation exhibit in the Eco Experience building (“Kick Gas”).

We need volunteers to help tell the story of what we’re doing to make Minnesota communities more livable. Together, we are working to invest in a transportation system that provides alternatives to driving, protects the environment,  encourages smart development and healthy communities, and ensures access to transportation for all Minnesotans, drivers or not.

No experience or expertise required – just a desire to spread the word about transportation choices, encourage more people to get involved with Transit for Livable Communities, and work with staff and volunteers to provide a welcoming and informative experience for fairgoers coming to our booth!

Our primary recruiting right now is for the Education Building exhibit. Click here to get to TLC’s online registration for shifts at the State Fair. We’re looking for volunteers to fill 4-hour shifts daily (9am-1pm, 1-5pm, or 5-9pm).  We’ll buy your ticket in (but will happily accept your in-kind donation of the $8 ticket if you feel so moved to help support our presence at the fair).

We will need some volunteers in the Eco Experience booth as well. To get more information about volunteering for this effort, contact Michelle (see below).
