Transit Equity Day in USA in 2023

The state of Wisconsin has celebrated Transit Equity Day on February 4th to commemorate Rosa Parks’ birthday, since 2019.

Rosa Parks was an American activist in the civil rights movement best known for her pivotal role in the Montgomery bus boycott.

This holiday was created in 2000 by the state legislature of California; it commemorates civil rights leaders on the birthday of Rosa Parks — a Black woman who refused to give up her bus seat for white people in 1955.

The Rosa Parks Memorial was unveiled in Montgomery, Alabama in 2021; the Rosa Parks bus was restored by The Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation in Dearborn, Michigan in 2001 and is now part of the museum's, "With Liberty and Justice for All" exhibit.

Rosa Parks Day should be observed by learning about Rosa Parks and some of her more notable quotes, such as, "I had given up my seat before, but this day, I was especially tired. Tired from my work as a seamstress, and tired from the ache in my heart."

In Ohio and Oregon it is celebrated on December 1st, the day Rosa Parks was arrested.
