Advocacy is about more than only technical or political issues.  At the Lackawanna Coalition, we want to help you stay educated, as well as informed, about our transit.

We feature presentations on various topics of interest at the beginning of our meetings, and we have some exciting talks coming up during the next few months.


At our May meeting, which will be held on the 21st (third Monday), our presenter will be Mike Slack, I.T. Director at NJ Transit. Mike will update us on the agency's latest technical innovations.

Our meeting on June 25th will feature Samuel Turvey, Chair of the Steering Committee for Rebuild Penn Station. He will give us a report on the efforts of his organization to rebuild the original, magnificent, 1910-vintage Penn Station as a centerpiece of a “new” grandeur for Midtown Manhattan.

On July 23d, we will focus on internal matters, as Chair David Peter Alan presents an overview of our plans for the next three years.

Our presenter on August 27th will be Legislative Director Sally Gellert, who will give us an introduction to Twitter, tailored for those of us who, unlike Donald Trump, are not regular Twitter users.

We meet at Millburn Town Hall, 375 Millburn Avenue, only a few blocks from the Millburn Station, on the fourth Monday of the month (except when holidays intervene, as one will next month).  We start at 6:45 pm, and we normally adjourn at 9:00.

We are thoroughly familiar with transit in the area, but you don't need to be.  If you are interested in transit, want to learn more about it and want to join us in our efforts to improve our transit, we will be glad to have you.

We invite you to come to a meeting, enjoy an educational presentation, and join us in our efforts to improve the transit that all of us ride.
