Progress In Motion brings together organizations with a stake in the safety and effectiveness of our transportation system to raise awareness and build support for action. Minnesota has fallen behind. Our infrastructure is aging and the state will not have the resources to repair and replace all of the deficient bridges and worn out roadways and will not be able to handle the growing congestion and need for investment in Minnesota highways, bridges and transit as the population grows by over 1 million in the coming decades.
A number of organizations and associations work on different aspects of transportation policy and funding but only with an organized, focused effort to reach out to the public and lawmakers can we all reach our goals for a safer and more effective transportation system. Your contribution to Progress In Motion leverages other funding and allows us utilize public relations tools and strategies such as paid advertising that individual groups do not have the budget to take advantage of alone.
AGC’s leadership of PIM continues as a Co-Chair along with the MN Transportation Alliance. Help us defend our recent gains and capitalize on potential opportunities for long-term transportation funding.
Progress In Motion reaches out to build political support for transportation investments. Through the use of many forms of media, PIM brings a strong message regarding the need for transportation investments to community and political leaders, editorial and blog writers, news reporters and the public. Our strategies include: Paid Advertising, Community Outreach, Earned Media Coverage, Social Media – You Tube, Facebook, Twitter -- and Reports and Publications with important information about Minnesota’s transportation system.
