Since 1993, we’ve grown from a small group that could fit around a conference table, to tens of thousands of supporters around the Midwest. We are now the nation’s largest high-speed rail advocacy organization, and we’ve brought together lawmakers, businesses and advocates to support and improve passenger rail around our region.
We have a great line up of speakers, including:
