WE ARE STANDING UP AND SAYING WE WONT TAKE IT ANY MORE !

A COALITION OF ORGANIZATIONS/ STUDENTS/ PARENTS/ MTA WORKERS/ TEACHERS & FACULTY MEMBERS /CONCERNED CITIZENS
ARE JOINING TO FIGHT AGAINST THE MTA CUT OF STUDENT METRO CARDS.

Let them hear you like they never had before!

SPONSORS
URBAN YOUTH COLLABORATIVE/UPROSE/DRUM/YOM/MTRNY/YACT/SAYA/YAYA NETWORK/ FOT

BACKGROUND:
On 12/16/09, a proposal was passed by the The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) Board 12-0 in favor of serious budget cuts taking place next year. Among the most critical effects of these budget cuts is the discontinuation of a program which provides free MetroCards for more than 500,000 city students. We all know this is outrageous, and for many students, it will affect our ability to attend school and obtain the free education that we deserve as taxpayers living in New York City.

ACTION:
This rally is actually happening, and you should come to show your support. WE WILL HAVE SPEAKERS A LETTER FOR THE PRESIDENT OF THE MTA AND A PRESS CONFERENCE TO SHOW OUR CONCERN AND TELL THEM OUR DEMANDS.

*************************************************************
PLEASE BE SURE TO:
INVITE ALL YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY MEMBERS, PEERS & TEACHERS.
**************************************************************

WE REALLY WANT YOU TO COME OUT & ACT TO MAKE A CHANGE!
