CSJ Environment and Transportation Lead Organizer, Sabrina Davis was quoted in the Associated Press story about Massachusetts’ ongoing constitutional campaign to raise money for transportation and education through a “Millionaire’s Tax.”
Sabrina Davis, an organizer with the Coalition for Social Justice and Bus Riders United, said she grew up poor in Fall River and relied heavily on public transit, falling back on more expensive cab rides when the buses weren’t running.
“Our family used public transportation because we couldn’t afford a car. We had to schedule our lives around the bus schedule,” she said during the press conference. “It felt like a vicious cycle. I needed a job to save up for a car, but I needed a car to get a job.”
