Infrastructure presents both an urgent challenge and a singular opportunity for the next presidential administration to address an issue that affects every American. It is also an issue that 90 percent of Americans believe should be a priority for the next administration. The forum will be an opportunity for candidates to address the challenges facing American’s roads and transit systems, bridges and railroads, ports and airports, and water and wastewater systems — and to lay out their vision for an infrastructure plan that supports a strong economy, job creation, consumer safety and national security. The forum will offer a dynamic conversation on the future of infrastructure in America. Infrastructure dictates access to jobs, education, and health care; it can help alleviate or exacerbate rising inequality; it can help solve the affordable housing crisis; and it is key to how Americans experience climate change pressures.

To make Moving America Forward possible the Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) has joined the non-partisan group, United for Infrastructure, which includes the International Union of Operating Engineers; Transportation Trades Department, AFL-CIO; North America’s Building Trades Unions; Transport Workers Union of America; American Society of Civil Engineers; American Public Transportation Association; American Council of Engineering Companies; American Road and Transportation Builders Association; Value of Water Campaign; Airports Council International-North America; and Build Together.
