We're getting fabulous tomorrow! Join us for a FREE DINNER and victory celebration! The theme is "pagent", so feel free to wear whatever makes you feel fabulous.
Join PPT to celebrate all that we can make possible when we organize together as transit riders, transit workers, and neighbors. Our Victory Party will uplift the major milestone that we achieved this Fall on our campaign for more affordable fares. And we'll uplift the other work that we've accomplished together in 2022.
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 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.
