We need more permanently affordable housing near transit, but the new version of #SB50 will exacerbate gentrification pressures in low-income communities of color. We stand with our coalition partners in @All4Transit and oppose the bill unless amended. medium.com/@ACTLA/the-roa…
We can't give comment at the @metrolosangeles vote, but this is what we would say:
As part of @All4Transit, we support #FareFreeTransit for students. Not only can this expand ridership & reduce emissions, but this will also relieve the stress of poor, transit dependent families.
#FareFreeTransit is a no-brainer, bringing together our fight against poverty, climate change & racist policing.
✅ Reduce economic burden on workers
✅ Expand ridership, cutting emissions
✅ No more transit police & tickets targeting people of color
