Award Ceremony: Presentation of “Champion of California High-Speed Rail” Awards to Congresswomen Loretta Sanchez & Karen Bass
Californians For High Speed Rail is honored to present a “Champion of California High Speed Rail” Award to Congresswomen Loretta Sanchez and Karen Bass for their tireless work to support high-speed rail in California and nationally. They will share their experiences of being advocates for a 21st Century transportation system in Congress. We are excited that both of them will be able to join us at this event!
Special Guest: Cathleen Galgiani, California State Senator, Long-Time Advocate for High-Speed Rail
State Senator Cathleen Galgiani, who authored AB 3034 (which placed Proposition 1A on the ballot), will share her experiences as a tireless high-speed rail advocate in the California Legislature and around the State.
Panel Discussion: Building the Foundation for High-Speed Rail in Southern California
With the historic commitment by the State Legislature to fund high-speed rail, including early investments in projects that lay the foundation for high-speed rail in urban areas, Southern California leaders and the California High-Speed Rail Authority are currently exploring the next generation of rail improvements in the Basin and beyond.
Californians For High Speed Rail and our event partners are excited to facilitate a panel discussion to explore the emerging rail network in Southern California and how that ties in with high-speed rail, what projects are being considered for early investments, where we are in the planning process, and efforts to find additional funding to accelerate these critical investments.
