Come learn about the People’s Voice on Transportation Equality, our campaign to improve the Asheville bus system by including more public participation, especially the voice of people who ride the bus out of necessity.  We will talk about this campaign and how you can be a part of it and we will roll up our sleeves and get busy right then and there.  Join us…this has been a fun and successful campaign.  Come get engaged for one night or stay with us throughout the campaign–WE VALUE YOUR VOICE!


Volunteer Survey

In building a movement for a more just and sustainable local economy, we are working hard to involve interested people, and we are gathering information about how our members and supporters would like to participate with us.  Our general meetings (every other month), our campaign meetings, and our committees are open to anyone and we invite you to participate, but individuals not able to attend meetings can still help support Just Economics’ mission. Please take this quick, 4-question survey if you are interested in engaging with Just Economics. We want to involve passionate people in our work in a way that feels right for them. https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/2CXYJRS

People’s Voice on Transportation Equality!

This is a campaign designed by people who ride the bus out of necessity to advocate for the voice of regular bus riders in transportation reform in Asheville.  This group has been meeting and working together for over a year to develop the People’s 19 Point Agenda on Transportation Reform.  We publicly launched the campaign this January in an effort to encourage more community engagement

To join our campaign or for questions about our campaign, contact Amy Cantrell at the JE office 828-505-7466 or amy@justeconomicswnc.org.
