New Graphic Novel Series on the Future of Transit Justice

PPT members are creating a graphic novel series on transit justice, and we want you to join in

PPT Members are planning big things for our March General Meeting. Together we’re creating a Transit Justice Graphic Novel series. The first topic will be on #FairFares. How will the world be different when we have organized and won #FairFares for everyone in Allegheny County? Join us at our March General Meeting to start the process with a creative brainstorm: March 11, 6pm Social Hour // 7pm General Meeting, 1 Smithfield St. A team of artists will help us sketch out the future of transit justice.

An expanded, accessible transit network to connect our region and beyond? A full fleet of electric buses? Walkable communities with family-owned businesses and affordable housing? A system without fares? A Green New Deal moved forward by transit labor? A transit agency led by its riders? Robust transit funding with corporations paying their fair share? Intersectional coalitions that organize boldly for collective liberation?

The true freedom to move?

The Transit Justice Graphic Novel Project

Led by our members, PPT is moving to create a 4-part graphic novel series to tell the story of how our future transit system looks when riders & operators have organized and won campaigns for transit equity.

Through a series of moderated brainstorming workshops, PPT members will develop a shared vision of how our communities are transformed by deep rider-led organizing. Weโ€™ll work together with writers and artists connected to the movement to create a story that actually illustrates what this future looks like.

The first meeting is March 11th to focus on a #FairFares future. Join us to brainstorm ideas and get involved in the project. More dates to come.
