Boston Buses  

are almost filled. If you have signed up for a Boston bus, look for a separate email early this week with additional details on your bus assignment. Our meeting time is 5:30am. The last bus will leave promptly at 6:00am from Alewife MBTA Station. (Note: This is too early in the morning to use public transportation to get to Alewife; the first train to Alewife leaves South Station at 5:32am.)

 

Speakers Panel 

will be held at The Great Hall at the The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art. The street address for directions is: 7 East 7th Street, New York, NY 10003; closest subway stations are: Astor Place, 8th Street & Lexington and 8th Street (NYU).

It's not too late to volunteer with us on event day.  

 

We're always looking for creative ideas for the afternoon rallies and volunteers for our street crew.  

  • Design homemade banners and posters
  • Lead rally chants (and take care of the bullhorns)
  • Distribute official posters and fliers

Email us gotb@amnesty133.org to sign up to volunteer.
