Take action:
  Ask Sacramento Regional Transit’s Board to tell you what they are doing to make sure they don’t contract with companies like G4S that are involved in or complicit with human rights violations. G4S’ contract expires in June and RT is now putting together a new request for proposals (RFP) for private security. Tell RT the new RFP should have social responsibility criteria and that you don’t want G4S hired again. Learn more about G4S’ Abuses at: www.G4Sfacts.org
