Fight for fair RIDE fares with BCIL ADAPT!

Join us to fight for your rights! You're invited to attend one of two information sessions this August to learn about BCIL's new chapter of ADAPT, a national grassroots disability rights organization (www.adapt.org). BCIL ADAPT uses nonviolent direct action to achieve equality for people with disabilities.

Currently, we are working to reverse the unjust fare increases in the RIDE, the paratransit system for those who face access barriers on the T and buses. In July 2012, RIDE fares doubled from $2 to $4 for most one-way trips, with trips to some "premium" areas now costing $5. This fare increase has kept people with disabilities and seniors stuck at home, unable to afford trips to work, doctors' appointments, and visits to family and friends.

Attend an information session to learn more! All are welcome.

When: Wednesday, August 7, 2013, 2:00-3:30 p.m. OR Tuesday, August 13, 2013, 6:30-8:00 p.m. (pick the one that's best for you)
Where: Boston Center for Independent Living, 60 Temple Place, 5th floor, Boston MA 02111
Who: People with disabilities and anyone who wants to fight for equal rights

Light refreshments will be provided. RSVPs are appreciated. To RSVP, or for more information or accommodations, please contact Allegra Stout at astout at bostoncil.org<mailto:astout at bostoncil.org> or 617-338-6665.
