This Friday, 16 June, join TransportiCA in honouring the incredible life and legacy of the late Norman Y. Mineta, celebrating the City of San José's second annual "Norman Mineta Day." TransportiCA's theme for the 2023 celebration is "How do you want Secretary Mineta Remembered?" We are asking you to email us a video recording with your answer, to be displayed the event's YouTube channel @NormanMinetaDay. The recordings will premier on YouTube at midnight, Pacific Daylight Time, on the 16th. (Please note: all videos sent to us will be posted, even if received after the 16th.)
For additional information about the celebration, or to send TransportiCA the link to your completed video, please email: info[at]normanmineta.day To learn more about Secretary Mineta's amazing life, please visit the U.S. House of Representatives' History Archive, the Mineta Legacy Project, and the Mineta Transportation Institute.
