Bus Riders Union: The FilmWednesday, August 1 Food @ 5:30 PM Film Screening @ 6:00 PM OPAL Office: 2407 SE 49th Ave Bus Lines: 4, 14, and 71
Bus Riders Union is a riveting documentary that tells the story of the early years of the Bus Riders Union in Los Angeles, an organization that has led the fight for transit justice in LA and around the country for nearly 20 years. The LA BRU is a close partner of OPAL, and served as a model for the formation of Bus Riders Unite. The film screening will be followed by a discussion of what we can learn from the experiences of the LA BRU to further strengthen our own local movement for transit justice.
