Our job access strategy is threefold:
- Bring jobs to people: Target investment in job hubs and job corridors throughout the state, particularly those closer to where concentrations of people live or those that leverage existing infrastructure and transportation assets.
- Connect people to jobs: Support increased state investment in public transit, and pioneering public/private innovation in worker mobility through emerging transportation models (Uber, Chariot, Lyft, and others) that increase access to job hubs.
- Address social barriers to job access: Long-standing institutional practices exacerbate the disconnection of residents from the economy. Our work strives to recognize and address the cost and consequences of institutional racism on our economy.
