Honor Malaysia Goodson for International Women’s Month

before the 10 A.M. MTA Board Meeting

Located at 2 Broadway in lower Manhattan

Near the accessible 4/5 Bowling Green Station.

Or/also, take the R,W to the

South Ferry/ Whitehall Street station

Malaysia Goodson is the 22-year-old African-American mother who in January fell to her death down the New York subway stairs.

We will be ending International Women’s Month by using the occasion of the monthly MTA Board meeting to honor the memory of Ms. Goodson, who managed to save her 1-year-old even as she fell.

The station where Goodson fell has no elevators. She was going down the stairs but that station only has escalators that go up. Goodson did what so many parents are forced to do: struggle up and down the New York subway stairs with a child and stroller — and hope for the best.

Rally speakers will share their stories and honor Ms. Goodson by adding their voices to accessibility rights advocates who have been calling for elevators and ramps in the subway for years. Our gathering will make sure her name is not forgotten!

Join us Wednesday at 9:00 AM at 2 Broadway. At 10 AM, some participants will go into the MTA board meeting to speak at the public comments section of the meeting.
