Join Bus Riders Unite at the November Membership Meeting

Tuesday, November 26th
6PM – 8PM
at the Rosewood Initiative (609 SE 162nd Ave., Portland)
Bus line #20, Blue MAX Line
Potluck dinner, English-Spanish translation and bus tickets will be provided

You won’t want to miss this month’s Bus Riders Unite meeting: we’ve spent a lot of time this year getting our house in order, and now we’re ready to have elections for the Leadership Committee of Bus Riders Unite! (PS. Nominations are due to vivian@opalpdx.org by the 19th of this month, please e-mail if you need a nomination form)

Our organization is run by and comprised of transit-dependent people who adhere to our leadership principles:

“Bus Riders Unite values the diverse cultures, backgrounds, experiences, and abilities of all of our members. We aim to build a democratic, multi-lingual, multiracial, all-inclusive community-based organization. Our leaders are committed to lifting up the voices of transit dependent people and people whose voices are not commonly heard.”

We want YOU to be a leader in your community. As a transit rider, YOU are the expert on rider issues, and we need your voice, leadership and vision. Come to the November meeting and elect the representatives who will guide our work on the Leadership Committee.

This is a potluck dinner, so please bring something to share! The kind folks at the Rosewood Initiative are giving us use of their space, and we’ll need volunteer help during the week to clean and take care of this community resource. Please get in touch with Nicole (nicole@opalpdx.org) or Vivian (vivian@opalpdx.org) if you can help out.

*RSVP to nicole@opalpdx.org or 503-342-8910*
