Local Advocacy Teams

We are looking for local advocates to join our Local Advocacy Teams.  Our local advocacy teams are made up of members who are engaged on the ground level in one or more of the 10 sections of the HSR system. We monitor local issues currently being studied by the Authority, provide feedback and suggestions in accordance with our platform, attend public meetings, rally HSR supporters, follow local politics and provide a countervailing pro-HSR voice to the foes of HSR.

Below is a list of the 10 geographically-based Local Advocacy Teams. Wait no longer. Become our local representative or contact the local representative within each group to get involved and help build support for high speed rail at the local level!
