TITLE: CARAVAN to SAVE JOBS AND FUND CUNY
DATE: Monday, May 18th
TIME: 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Click here to RSVP.
PARTICIPATION: This event is open to all who wish to attend in cars.* Come and go as you wish! We will not leave our cars or congregate in any way but, technically, caravans are not allowed under current NYC regulations.
*Due to probable rain and the difficulty of maintaining social distancing in traffic, we are concerned for cyclist safety and the possibility of dispersal by NYPD if “congregated.” Experienced cyclists only who are committed to wearing masks and maintaining social distancing must RSVP by Saturday, May 16th at 8:00pm to receive special guidelines and instructions.

Post signs on your car before arriving. Signs on ROOF OF CAR will be seen by onlookers from above in buildings.Take photos of your car and post on social media!
We’ll do our best to stay together but, if your car is separated, do your best to catch up and find the noise!
The forecast is for rain so colorful masking tape can be used on the outside of car and signs should be taped on the inside. Drive with your blinkers on, honk, have fun and be #unionstrong!
