Saturday, August 13 · 1:00pm – 5:00pm
Carmensville Playground (152nd St and Amsterdam Avenue)
Transit Riders in Northern Manhattan and all across the city have faced 3 fares hikes in 3 years, the elimination of over 30 bus routes, and transportation decisions that are not benefiting all New Yorkers equally. WE ACT for Environmental Justice recently launched our grassroots campaign, the Transit Riders Action Committee (TRAC), to organize, educate and advocate for fare and equitable transportation policies in Northern Manhattan.
We are launching our campaign with a Transit Justice BBQ on August 13th. There will be free food, music, games and educational workshops (Spanish translation provided). TWU Local 100 and the Rider Rebellion are co-sponsoring the event.
