AUGUST 2020 #3 BLM Caravan II

NEWS

BLM Protest Caravan
Today from 3-5pm

Show your support of Black Lives Matter during our second Protest Car Caravan starting at MetroCenter. We will be meeting outside of the MetroCenter Cholla library where we will be making signs from 3pm-3:45pm for our cars. Or, you can just attend at 4pm where we will launch as a caravan from MetroCenter Cholla Library. Our route will be a large rectangle as we leave MetroCenter to 35th Ave, heading North to Bell Rd, going East to 19th Ave, heading South to Glendale, going West to 35th Ave and heading North back to MetroCenter. There will be one stop at the 19th Ave Light Rail Parking lot near Dunlap Ave where we will re-group. We will have BLM flags for the first 50 cars so that everyone can see we are a group in support of BLM.

Please RSVP: Chris Gehlker at canyonrat@icloud.com or 602-370-0128. Tell your friends – you don’t have to live in LD20 to participate.

See you there!
