The Bus Riders Union is a member of the Organizing Centre for Social and Economic Justice.
The Organizing Centre became a reality in August 2006, after more
than three years of discussion and planning. Part of the vision of the
OCSEJ is to extend the successful model of the BRU to other campaigns
and issues. We view broad-based, militant class conscious organizations
of the multiracial working class as the building blocks of our movement
for a better world. Most recently, OCSEJ organizers founded the
Alliance for People's Health (APH). The APH and the BRU are both member
organizations of the Organizing Centre.
The OCSEJ, serves four key objectives:
- To educate, organize and mobilize working class communities
through providing needed services (particularly health care services)
and organizing to win concrete gains for most exploited and oppressed
within the working class.
- To create a political, economic and physical space for front line organizers to discuss, debate and develop common strategy.
do research, analysis and popular education that can serve as a basis
for launching and supporting class struggle organizations that are
explicitly internationalist, anti-racist, and anti-sexist.
- To train conscious organizers who are committed to the long term struggle for social and economic justice.
