Currently, the Motor City Freedom Riders is only able to support one half-time staff person for all of our organizing work. We are mostly volunteer-driven, with a strong and growing membership, which means we can make our few resources go a long way.

This fall, we launched our “18 by ’18” campaign, to raise $18,000 by 2018 so that we can majorly ramp up our grassroots organizing across all four counties of southeast Michigan. We’re raising money to support our new transit organizing training program and a route captain outreach program. We hope to be able provide bus passes to riders who have completed our training program to be in charge of Motor City Freedom Riders outreach to other riders on their bus route. Your contributions are what make this possible!
