Siggy is an activist and Massachusetts native who has been working in progressive movements since 2008. Siggy started organizing for transit justice as a student and then spending 5 years organizing with transit riders and workers in Southeastern Massachusetts. In that time Siggy's work included building a bus rider's advocacy organization and organizing winning campaigns for increasing and expanding bus service, stopping fare hikes, and helping pass statewide legislation to give riders a voice and vote on regional transportation boards. Siggy became the first ever rider to sit on the Southeastern Regional Transit Authority Advisory Board. In addition to organizing for improved investment in transportation, Siggy worked to build community through organizing public art installations in an historic immigrant neighborhood in New Bedford, Massachusetts.
