What: Portland Transit Riders Union kickoff meeting
When: Saturday, April 11, 12:00noon
Where: SEIU Local 49, 3536 SE 26th Ave
Hundreds of Portlanders have turned out already at TriMet's public hearings this week to defend our public transit against the proposed cuts to service! Join together in the new Portland Transit Riders Union to build strength in unity, strategize and take action together to make public transit work for working people in Portland!
Plus, visiting organizers from the L.A. Bus Riders Union will brief us on their great work and what they've been able to achieve (see http://www.thestrategycenter.org/project/bus-riders-union for inspiration!)
TriMet directions: Taking the 9-Powell or 10-Harold, get off at 26th and Powell, location of BurgerVille, Cleveland H.S., and Powell Park, and walk a few steps south on Powell; the building is on your left. Taking the 17-Holgate, get off at 26th & Holgate and walk a few blocks north.Email This Post Possibly related posts
