STANDOUT to protest unfair MBTA rate increases
Monday, July 1, 2019
MBTA rate hikes have increased 41% since 2012. On Monday, July 1st, they’ll increase again, burdening riders but especially the poor, families and riders on fixed incomes. We say that’s UNACCEPTABLE.
Join us as the STREZO camp aligns with a coalition of activists, riders, and community leaders coming together to build momentum to fix our deteriorating public transit system. As the fare hikes go into effect on Monday, July 1st, many of us will be at MBTA stations throughout the system to hear directly from riders. We’re working alongside the #bostontparty #wutrain We will be standing out at the Assembly Orange Line stop (American Fresh Brewhouse side, 490 Foley St.) from 7:30-9am on Monday, July 1st.
We need to send the MBTA a message that it’s not okay to purge riders for a system that has been in need of improvements, safety updates and increased schedule needs.
Come for some or all of the standout. Raise awareness. Speak up. Stand out.
Craz-skee for Kristen KICKOFF!!!
Wednesday, April 24th 6:30pm – 8:30pm
I have a special place in my heart for skeeball. Playing skeeball was how I alleviated pressure during grad school. No doubt my high score during finals week was unbeatable. This time, though, it’s all in the name of friendship and hope for the future.
So, please join us for our official campaign kickoff party, Crazy-skee for Kristen, a celebration in honor of my candidacy for Somerville City Councilor At-Large!
Our kickoff will be on Wednesday, April 24th from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m at the Dark Horse Public House (499 Broadway, Somerville).
Let’s talk about the future of Somerville and maybe compete in a skeeball match or two!
I want to celebrate this next step together with you. Join us!
