Last Call for Transit! Volunteers are needed!

The PA General Assembly is down to the wire, with just five session days left to address the transportation funding issue before Thanksgiving. That’s why we’re reaching out to legislators tomorrow to impress upon them how important it is that they pass a robust bill that funds transit, as well as roads and bridges.

Most important in ensuring that legislators hear our message, is making sure that they hear from their constituents. We are looking for volunteers to staff a phone bank toight, November 13th to reach out to voters across the state. from 6-8:30pm at the Sierra Club, 425 N. Craig
