We hope you have already marked your calendar for January 18, from 6:30 p.m. - 8:30 p.m. for the next forum in our Envisioning the Purple Line Series. We are busy putting together a fantastic update for you on the project and we have received confirmation that Secretary of Transportation Pete Rahn will be our special guest speaker along with a terrific panel including a representative from the concessionaire (Purple Line Transit Partners). We hope to have representatives from both Prince George's and Montgomery counties, as well.
VERY IMPORTANT: As always, the event is open to the public and tickets will be free - but all seats must be reserved in advance as space is limited to the first 100 people.

In order to bring you this very popular series, we are asking each of you who can't wait to ride the Purple Line to consider becoming a sponsor for the event. Now that construction has begun, there will be lots of information to share and progress to learn about. As you know, we had to put this educational series on hold for the past year until groundbreaking occurred. As a result, our already bare-bones budget has been put to the test while we paused our fundraising efforts to allow the lawsuit to make its way through the court. Help us meet our bottom line now by considering a sponsorship. We will publicize your participation on our website sponsor list and at the event, and all sponsors will be invited to the private reception right before the forum.
Purple Line NOW remains committed to bringing you timely information as often as possible, through our website, Twitter, Facebook and blasts like these. Because we want to make sure these events always remain free to our community, we must fundraise to underwrite the costs to put them on. We will continue to work to bring together members of the community, those who are building the Purple Line and elected officials with the goal of building a light rail project that will meet the promise of connecting communities, reducing travel time, and providing a clean, efficient mode of transportation.
For more information and to become a sponsor, please see our sponsorship information page. With abundant thanks for your consideration, your support, and your elbow grease, we wish you a wonderful holiday season.
