Linsday Imai


Lindsay Imai is Transportation Justice Program Coordinator at Urban Habitat. As part of the Transportation Justice program, Lindsay works to reverse racist and classist transportation policies and investment decisions that have historically underfunded urban bus systems in favor of highway expansion and commuter rail that disproportionately serve affluent, non-minority communities.  She does this through research, policy analysis, advocacy, coalition building, community organizing support and media activism. Before joining Urban Habitat, Lindsay worked on issues of affordable housing, prime lending and community reinvestment in Citibank’s Community Mortgage Lending Department and at the Greenlining Institute.  She also was a community organizer focused on school reform in Queens, NY. Lindsay has a Masters in Public Administration and a BA in Ethnic Studies.
