You’re invited! Get your ticket today to join PPT’s Year-End Transit Justice Victory Party!
2023 was a big year for our organizing: We topped 250 dues-paying members! We elected a transit champion into the critical County Executive seat! We organized with state legislators and rallied at the Harrisburg Rotunda steps for new transit funding for Transit for All PA! And our members are driving transit and pedestrian-first policies in the City of Pittsburgh and the Mon Valley!
This year’s party will be held at the East End Cooperative Ministries in East Liberty, in their Great Room at 6165 Harvard Street. We’ll have delicious food catered by one our favorite PRT transit workers, Khristian’s Katering. We’ll have fun tunes DJ’d by another of our favorite PRT transit workers, DJ Frank. A NEW PPT T-SHIRT will be available ($20 suggested donation), and we’ll have incredible artwork and stickers to share from our 2023 year-end campaign artist Névé Monroe-Anderson!
Get your tickets below to celebrate the big year behind us and bring that fire energy into 2024!
What to expect: The celebration will be one to remember. We’ll be inside at the East End Cooperative Ministries. The entrance is at 6165 Harvard St. The party will go from 7pm-11pm. The tickets are pay what you can, $20 suggested donation, but no one will be turned away! There will be a full dinner served free to all people who RSVP. Music will be provided by our friend DJ Frank and dancing will most certainly happen. PPT members will host transit-themed games, and PPT members from different campaigns will talk about what it takes to win and what it means for their families and our communities. Attendees should not feel obligated to attend the entire event, so feel free to arrive and leave at whatever times work best for you.
