Show Your Support at Central Valley Public Hearings

Do you live in Central Valley or have family or friends from Central Valley? California’s High Speed Rail project needs you now more than ever!

In the coming days and weeks, Californians For High Speed Rail (CA4HSR) is asking HSR supporters from all walks of life – businesses, workers, students, families, environmentalists and more – to come together and show support for HSR at several upcoming public hearings organized by the CA HSR Authority and the Federal Railroad Administration.

Federal and state officials will be there. Members of the media will be there. As the CAHSR Authority takes comments on draft environmental impact reports/environmental impact statements cover Merced to Bakersfield, it is imperative that our diverse voices supporting HSR be heard at these public hearings.

Can we count on you to attend or invite your family and friends in Central Valley to attend? Below you will find the venues and dates of upcoming HSR hearings. If you or your friends can come, please hit “reply” to this email and let Daniel Krause, executive director of CA4HSR know. If you can offer volunteer support at these hearings or to our group in general, we look forward to hearing from you too!

Thank you for your continued dedication to bringing high-speed rail to California!

Best Regards,
Daniel Krause
Executive Director,
