Rail~Volution: Call for Speakers Now Open

Rail~Volution: Call for Speakers Now Open


Rail~Volution is a national movement: It is a revolution led by people from all perspectives dedicated to creating healthy, economically vibrant, socially equitable and environmentally sustainable communities with transit.

Rail~Volution is an event: Since 1995, it has been a driving force in the livability movement. Every year, people come together in a transit-rich community to participate in workshops, charrettes, networking events and toolbox sessions. Last year in Portland, OR, over 1,200 people attended.

Rail~Volution 2011 is in Washington, DC: Our nation's capital showcases a full spectrum of livable communities and transportation choices, from mature transit systems, to drawing board projects and neighborhoods in transition and a lot more. From Pierre L' Enfant's 1791 city plan of grand avenues and ceremonial spaces to the nation's largest bike-share system, you'll experience a history-rich region that provides an inspiration for the work we are doing in our own communities. This year's conference also places us in the midst of political uncertainties during a time of crucial reauthorization decisions.

Rail~Volution 2011 is seeking speakers: We want the people who will lead the movement -- people who can best share the stories that will educate, provoke and inspire conference attendees through toolbox sessions, panel presentations, and workshops. We are calling on a wide range of speakers whose work supports and furthers our mission of building livable communities with transit.

If you are one of those people, we want to hear from you!
