Opponents of the Prospect Park West bike lane and traffic-calming project are planning to hold a rally and media event on Thursday morning, October 21. Their goal is to get rid of this innovative livable streets project.
It is essential that supporters of this project show up in large numbers for our own demonstration that morning. We need to make it clear to the press and politicians, once and for all, just how much this project is valued by the broader community.
Supporters will be rallying at Grand Army Plaza on Thursday, October 21 at 8:00am. We would like to get a big, diverse and civil crowd out to this event. If you show up to one local political event this year, make it this one. And please feel free to your bring kids and their grandparents. Show that livable streets matter to everyone.
If you plan on coming, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
