Move LA is helping organize students around opportunities to win discounted transit passes at LA Metro and in the state Legislature. Toward that end we are hosting a Student Transit Pass Summit at LA Trade Tech in downtown LA next Friday the 13th (!) from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Could you help get this message out to students? We have contacts with student leadership at community colleges but need help reaching out to state universities and UCLA!

Want to get deeply discounted student transit passes when you register for classes? So you can ride any line, any time—bus or rail? Come to LA Trade Tech on Friday the 13th and talk to student leadership from across LA County about a countywide/statewide campaign to reduce the cost of transportation and make getting an education more affordable! This is a free event, but registration is required & space is limited (need a head count for food!).
Come talk with: Alex Galeana/SSCCC, Romel Lopez/East LA Community College, Jesse Randel/Santa Monica College, Chase Frederick/SW College, Lorena Aguilar/Mission College+CCASA, Saleem Moimuddin/Valley College+CCASA, Milo Anderson/Pierce College, and Isaac Medeiros, Gerson Liahut-Sanchez, Clarissa Casillas, and the CCASA crew.
With LA Metro Deputy CEO Stephanie Wiggins, Nick Liedtke from Asm. Chris Holden's office, author of AB 2222 to provide $50M/year for student passes, LA Trade Tech President Larry Frank, Move LA Executive Director Denny Zane and more!
