Hear from riders and workers and join our on-the-spot call-in to:

  • Support our regional public transit workers & their unions 
  • Support all riders who depend on public transit
  • Support our national movement to expand public transit, make it cheaper and more accessible, replace our unsustainable dependence on private, fossil-fueled transportation, and lift up the good, green, union jobs public transit requires

Transit Equity Day is a national collaborative effort of climate and social justice organizations and unions to promote public transit as a civil right and as a strategy to combat climate change and bring about a Green New Deal centered in social justice.

The Amalgamated Transit Union and Labor Network for Sustainability launched Transit Equity Day on February 4th, 2018. Gathering on Rosa Parks’ birthday, we honor her act of resistance on public transit, highlighting the rights of all people to high-quality public transportation powered by clean/renewable energy.

 

Our local Bay Area Transit Equity Day Online Rally is organized by Genesis in collaboration with 350 Bay Area; East Bay and San Francisco Democratic Socialists of America; Sierra Club Bay Chapter; Triple Justice,; Wellstone Democratic Club;  and members of unions, and climate and social justice organizations.

Please share widely!
