Please join us July 14th from 6:15pm to 7:30pm for our monthly online meetup featuring Katie Wilson of the Transit Riders Union! The call opens at 6:15pm with the speaker starting at 6:30pm. Zoom call information below.
The Transit Riders Union is a democratic organization of working and poor people—including students, seniors, and people with disabilities—taking control over their own lives, and building up the power they need to change society for the good of humanity and of the planet. They fight to preserve, expand, and improve the public transportation system in Seattle and beyond, so that every human being has access to safe, affordable, and reliable public transit. They have been at the forefront of the progressive politics in our region, fighting for affordable transit, the elimination of life changing criminal charges due to transit fares, and a more just funding system for all our government.
Their General Secretary, Katie Wilson, will be joining us to talk about the future of transit and transit funding in our region, progressive taxation, the politics of our city and taking your questions.
This monthly social event is free, all ages, and open to everyone. Call in if you want to meet other people who care about our city, network, or hear from an inspirational speaker. Below will be details for joining via video or phone. The line opens a 6:15pm for networking and discussion and the speaker starts at 6:30pm. We hope you can join us!
