Oakland County Transit Organizing Meeting

Mon, Oct 9, 2017 - 6:00pm to 7:00pm


We're in crunch time to push Oakland County leadership into allowing regional transit back on the ballot in 2018. The Motor City Freedom Riders are organizing a local county committee of bus riders and transit supporters in Oakland to fight back against the obstruction of regional transit by our representatives. At this meeting, we'll be discussing and planning the following:
- How to leverage business leadership in the county that both understands how important transit is to economic development and has influence with County Executive L. Brooks Patterson
- The hosting of public mass meetings in Oakland County in early November to build popular momentum around regional transit
- Growing our base in Oakland County (rider outreach, identifying new community parters and allied organizations, Halloween canvassing ["Trick or Transit"])
- Potential SMART opt-in campaigns
- Anything else that comes up! We always start from an agenda, but our organizing meetings are participatory and participant-driven. Bring your big ideas on how to fight for better transit in Oakland County.

All are welcome!
