With serious cuts to transit and transportation proposed at the federal level, various national organizations have banded together to form ‘Don’t X Out Public Transit’ – a campaign to rally against cuts and support federal investment in transit. Some of the organizations include heavy hitters, like Reconnecting America, Amalgamated Transit Union, and American Public Transportation Association.
Tomorrow is the official ‘Don’t X Out Public Transit’ day, with a few things you can help out with:
Get involved by taking action on September 20 and telling Congress that now is the time to invest in public transportation infrastructure! Now is not the time for cuts.
- Attend a rally event near you
- Contact your Congressional representatives
- Spread the word
- Ride public transit and WEAR RED!
In addition to taking the above actions, tell us why public transit is so important to you. Share your transit story of about 500 words with us by e-mailing us at dontx.publictransit @ gmail dot com. We may post your story here.
While there won’t be any rallies here, the Seattle Transit Riders’ Union will be out and about handing out promotional materials so be sure to say hi if you see them around.
