Dr. Kafui Attoh talk – Rights in Transit: Transit workers, Transit Justice, Right to the City

June 4 @ 10:00 am 12:00 pm

Join us for an in person talk by Doctor Kafui Attoh; assistant professor of urban studies at the Joseph S. Murphy Institute for Worker Education and Labor Studies at CUNY’s School of Professional Studies.

Professor Kafui Ablode Attoh’s book Rights in Transit elevates the idea of transportation as a right not as merely a ‘civil right’ or even a ‘socio-economic right’ but as a fundamental right to the democratic city where urbanization politics has often alienated, excluded, and betrayed the economically disadvantaged, many of whom ride public buses.
