Campaign Launch: Jovanka Beckles for AC Transit Board

July 18, 2020

Jovanka Beckles is running for the AC Transit Board of Directors to build a public transportation system for the people!  Her campaign is about championing the labor rights of the bus driver's union (ATU 192), and fighting for fare-free transit as a crucial measure to lower emissions in the East Bay.
The Campaign Launch will start out with a performance by Honey Gold Jenkins.  Then we have an amazing roster of speakers including:
  • Berkeley City Council member Cheryl Davila;
  • Our own EBDSA member and transportation activist Richard Marcantonio;
  • Richmond Progressive Alliance Chair BK Williams;
  • ATU 192's Nathaniel Arnold;
  • SFDSA member and State Senate Candidate Jackie Fielder;
  • CUNY Professor and author of Rights in Transit: Public Transportation and the Right to the City in California’s East Bay (University of Georgia Press 2019), Kafui Attoh; and
  • Jovanka Beckles!
Join us this Saturday from 1:00-2:30 for Jovanka's online Campaign Launch.  Register here:
