Want better transit in your community? Join a PPT committee and make it happen.
Transit riders and workers are organizing to fight for more affordable, accessible, safe, and equitable service – and PPT’s committee meetings are where the magic happens. Each month, PPT’s members and volunteers come together in a number of different forums to both decide the strategy and tactics that we will take to further our campaigns and to put in work to make them a success.
Description of our Committees, the work that gets done there, and who is invited to attend.
Currently, all of these meetings are held via Zoom and are conducted in English:
Campaign Strategy Meeting
Campaign Strategy Meeting – monthly discussion-based meeting to decide specific strategies and tactics that we will use to further PPT campaigns. This is the highest level of member leadership outside of being elected to PPT’s Board of Directors. These meetings are only open to current PPT Members – become a member here.
Organizing Committee – monthly working meeting to focus on bringing more people in to support PPT campaigns. This committee hosts regular phone banks and bus stop canvasses to build relationships with riders and bring them into our campaigns. These meetings are open to PPT Members and anyone else looking to get more involved in our work.
Communications Committee – monthly working meeting to tell the story of PPT’s campaign successes and struggles. During these meetings, attendees help produce content to communicate our victories – with activities such as writing blogs, editing videos, producing newsletters, curating photography, and doing graphic design. These meetings are open to PPT Members and anyone else looking to get more involved in our work.
Research Committee – monthly working meeting to conduct data and policy research to support PPT campaigns. During these meetings, attendees analyze data, investigate policies being implemented in other cities, and assemble reports that recommend action to improve our transit system. These meetings are open to PPT Members and anyone else looking to get more involved in our work.
Accessibility Committee – monthly discussion/working meeting to improve the ease and depth of access for people to participate in our work. During these meetings, attendees discuss and work to expand access to our organization by eliminating barriers put in place by disability, language, and other social constructs. These meetings are open to PPT Members and anyone else looking to get more involved in our work.
