For Today
 
March Transit TalkPolling for Transit

If you're tuned into conversations about transit in our city, you know we need more of it. Transit Talks, Transportation Choices Coalition's quarterly lunchtime forum, will present polling and market research, and divine what it tells us about the future of transit needs in Puget Sound. 

This means that you'll get to hear EMC research, mayor Ed Murray, and Seattle city council member Mike O'Brien sound off on what all of those numbers and jargon really mean.

Attendees are encouraged to RSVP before the event in the form provided.
 
March Transit Talk: Polling for Transit, Tue, Mar 10, Noon, Seattle City Hall, Bertha Knight Landes Room, 600 Fourth Ave, Free with RSVP


For Wednesday
 
Feminism and Arts in Seattle Takes Over Twitter

Our pick for Wednesday won't involve commuting to Town Hall or a community center or city hall—all you'll need is a Twitter account, a smart phone, and an opinion on Seattle's art scene.

Hosted by the Seattle Office of Arts and Culture (@SeaOfficeofArts), you'll have the opportunity to join organizations such as Reel Grrls (@ReelGrrls), the Vera Project (@VeraProject), Short Run Press (@ShortRunSeattle), and the Pratt Fine Arts Center (@PrattFineArts) to discuss how art and feminism intersect in Seattle.

With exhibits like Bell Jar and events like The Sun Never Sets causing a stir lately, Seattle art fanatics know feminism has been a hot topic. 

Just use the hashtag #SeaArtsFeminism to join in! To catch a glimpse of who else will be participating, check out the Facebook page.
