New group launches mobility campaign

Thursday, September 26, 2019 by Tai Moses

A new nonprofit group called PUMA – People United for Mobility Action – is holding a launch party “to discuss and share goals, hopes and challenges as we consider exciting opportunities for mobility,” according to a press release. PUMA’s mission is for everyone in Austin to be able to access “safe, affordable, and convenient choices to get around and meet their daily needs.” Shavone Otero, PUMA’s board chair, said in the release, “PUMA is working to amplify the voices of underserved and underrepresented communities who are most dependent on the outcomes of transportation planning. That’s why PUMA is focused on meeting people in their communities to discuss mobility challenges and to gather ideas for solutions.” The public is invited to the free campaign launch party, which will feature Mayor Steve Adler, Mayor Pro Tem Delia Garza and Council Member Ann Kitchen. Child care and Spanish language interpreters will be provided. Please RSVP here. Tuesday, Oct. 1, 5:30-7:30 p.m., George Washington Carver Museum, 1165 Angelina St.
