It’s an incredible time for public transportation in the Richmond region and Chesterfield specifically. There are many opportunities to get involved and do the important work of bringing public transportation to folks that need it to connect to the basics of life—education, jobs, healthy food, and medical care. This screening of Free to Ride hopes to inspire and encourage congregations to begin that work. Come watch and discuss the film, as we pray and learn about ways to help grow public transportation in metro Richmond so that all can thrive as God intends!
