URGENT – MUNI ACTION NEXT TUESDAY!!!!
Next Tuesday, May 24, the Coalition for Transit Justice will hold a rally and press conference at 1:15 on the steps of City Hall. WE NEED EVERYONE THERE!!!
The Board of Supervisors will be voting on a proposed $4.6 million give-away to illegal parkers and car drivers. This money could go towards stopping fee hikes and service cuts – but only if we’re there to let them know transit riders are organized and demand that the money be spent otherwise.
Following the rally/press conference, we’ll be heading into the Board meeting together to testify that fee hikes and service cuts are the most important priority for this city.
We’re thinking about chartering a bus to pick people up. Please let me know if that would help in your outreach efforts, and I’ll keep you all updated on getting it.
I think this can be a great event, our best yet at one of the most crucial moments we’ve faced. We’re so close to getting what we want – let’s make it happen!!!
Please contact me with any questions, concerns, or help you may need with outreach.
