Highway 1 Overpass Bridge Brigade to support Black Lives Matter
June 5 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm PDT
Join us Friday June 6 from 4–6pm on Highway 1 Overpass Bridge Brigade to support Black Lives Matter.
The Bridge Brigade promotes or protests political events and issues with large signs held on Highway 1 overpasses during peak commute time. We are calling on those of you who have participated in the past, shown potential interest, or those who are new to the idea to help with our Bridge Brigade presence on 6/05 from 4 to 6pm.
To encourage our fellow citizens to vote in the Primary Election we will be on the Morrissey overpass with the Large 10 x 20 ft banner “BLACK LIVES MATTER”; and to promote Santa Cruz Indivisible we will be on the next bridge, La Fonda, with the large banners “WE ARE INDIVISIBLE”.
Participants will either help hold up the large signs, and/or wave American flags or your hands to show enthusiasm and draw attention to the issue. Can be a lot of fun as commuters honk, holler, or wave back.
The only requirement is to be able to stand for a period of time (does not need to be the full 2 hours), as we cannot block the sidewalks with chars.
