May Day Car Rally to Support Essential Workers

May 1st, 3pm. We'll keep our physical distance in our cars but come ready to rally in support of the #frontlineheroes who are working essential jobs every day. Make signs to display in your car windows! #1u
To RSVP and learn more, visit our Facebook event.

How do I join the car rally?
We will be meeting by the USPS facility at the intersection of Summer Street and Dorchester Ave in Boston. We are working with the City of Boston to safely line up along Summer Street. Try to arrive early enough to safely line up.

The first car in line will be at Dorchester Ave & Summer St, facing east. As you arrive, join the back of the line which will extend down Summer Street, and wrap around South Station onto Atlantic Ave.
