Sample Letter:

I stand behind the ladies of #drivenbutdenied!  The activity of discrimination and lack of diversity in its ranks is not acceptable in 2014.

Madison Metro Transit should be used as a test case to address our reforms and other recommendations in the report: “A Strategic Vision for the Future: City of Madison Racial Equity and Social Justice Initiative.”
