Help secure support for high-speed rail

We are seeking support for a major federal investment in fast trains. There is already a strong coalition behind this effort but it’s important that we continue to grow the movement. Currently we are reaching out to mayors and local officials across the country, who understand the community building power of fast trains better than anyone.

You can help by reaching out directly to your mayor, elected officials, civic leaders and organizations who you suspect support the many benefits of fast, frequent and affordable trains.

Get involved by taking the following steps:

1) Send an email (here is a sample one) to the elected official or organization. Attach the sample letter of support. Please CC info(at)hsrail.org to keep us in the loop. 

2) If they are supportive, ask if they would put the letter of support on their letterhead, addressed to their Congressman and Senators. It would be great if they added a paragraph describing a desired local project.

3) Have them mail or email copies to their representatives.  

4) Please ask them to upload a copy here.

P.S. If they are supportive but don’t want to send a letter, have them contact us so we can add them to our list of supporters.

Thank you very much for your help.

Feel free to call the office at 773-334-6758 or send us a note at https://hsrail.org/contact if you have any questions.
