Solidarity with San Jose Transit Workers
For the past year, transit workers in San Jose have been fighting alongside their riders for COVID safety measures like free on-board masks and on-site testing and vaccination. These essential frontline workers did not have the luxury to work safely from home. Day after grueling day they kept transit running so that many other essential workers could continue to serve our community at their jobs at healthcare facilities, grocery stores and many other critical destinations. On May 26, their lives were shattered in a mass shooting where nine members of the union lost their lives. Public Advocates stands in solidarity with San Jose transit workers who have showed incredible courage during the pandemic and who now need the public's support more than ever.
