Welcome to Charity!

When elected officials and local leaders of the NAACP came together to discuss transit equity in Miami-Dade County, they felt it best they do so in honor of none other than civil rights legend and transportation trailblazer Rosa Parks.

Parks spearheaded a movement in December 1955 when she refused to give up her seat at the front of a segregated bus in Montgomery, Alabama to a white man. Her resulting arrest inspired the 13-month Montgomery Bus Boycott, during which tens of thousands of people refrained from using public transport until the U.S. Supreme Court ruled segregation on public buses unconstitutional.
