Show RTD We Support Affordable Transit!
Monthly RTD passes start at $80 and go up from there. Many working class folks who rely on public transit to get to work can't afford that. Colorado JWJ member organization, 9to5, is launching a campaign to have RTD create an income-based transit pass, and they've already gotten quite the reaction from RTD. We'll be joining them at the next RTD meeting on Tuesday February 18th at 5 PM at 1600 Blake Street -- will you join us there and WEAR RED to show your support?
Economic Justice Lobby Day
Next week on February 19th, JWJ will be collaborating with 9to5 Colorado, Colorado Progressive Coalition, El Centro Humanitario, and FRESC: Good Jobs Strong Communities on an Economic Justice Lobby Day. There's a long list of bills that need support -- from major pushes on the bills to stop wage theft and protect the rights of homeowners in manufactured housing to child care affordability and equal pay for adjunct professors at community colleges. We'll start with breakfast at 8 AM at St Paul Lutheran -- 1600 Grant Street. There will be an overview of the bills, materials, and training on how to lobby legislators provided. We'll then go to the Capitol to lobby, return to the church at noon and each lunch. We'll be done at 1 PM. This is a great opportunity to show legislators that working people's issues are important, so come join us!
