TEN dedicates this study
to the countless grassroots leaders who follow in the tradition ofRosa Parks and work for transportation equity every day.Civil rights advances in this country are not brought about solely by grassroots effort; civilservants who are dedicated to the cause of fair and good government are key to making theseadvances real and comprehensive.
TEN would like to thank
the Civil Rights Division of theFederal Highway Administration for their part in advancing the cause of civil rights.
