Organizing Riders, Community and Political Alliances
Following the International’s lead Canadian Council Affiliates are encouraged to partner with rider’s groups and community organizations to advocate for improved transit and on social justice issues. Many of our affiliates have already undertaken this effort but if yours has not please consult the list of organizations to see if there’s a group in your city or region to work with. This list is by no means complete so if you have any suggestions for additions please let us know. If you need assistance with organizing efforts please contact us here at the Council.
