Statement on latest racist incident on MAX

Just two months after the brutal stabbings at Hollywood Transit Center, we’ve seen another ugly incident of racist violence on MAX.

Public transit is “public” for a reason – it belongs to each and every member of this community. No matter who you are and regardless of where you come from, we ALL deserve safety on transit.

ATU 757 extends our support to the victims of this horrifying incident, and we condemn racism and xenophobia in the strongest terms. We continue to stand with our communities as they demand justice on transit, and we recommit ourselves to the work of making transit safer for riders and workers alike.
