Pushing back against MTA Service Cuts
Ride the Bus with US Press event highlights the loss of service to South Los Angeles
Our press event at the corner of King and Crenshaw in South Los Angeles shined a light on the real faces of the riders who will be directly impacted by these cuts - household workers, cafeteria workers at UCLA, students, unemployed people and more. We had a good turnout of media and after speeches by Sunyoung Yang, Barbara Lott-Holland and Rosa Miranda, reporters accepted our invitation to ride the bus with us.
We are keeping the pressure on! You can join us as the fight against the service cuts continues:
- Stop the Service Cuts Press Conference & Rally. Wednesday, April 27th at 3pm at the corner of Wilshire & Western. All allied organizations and individuals are invited.
- MTA Board Meeting. Thursday April 28th at 8:30 am. We will be taking the fight back to the door of the decision-makers. Meet us in front of the MTA headquarters behind Union Station at Cesar Chavez/Vignes. If your organization can bring a letter of support on that day, please contact us here.
