OPT OUT – SHOP OUT
Following up on a successful event at Roosevelt Field, which got great press coverage, this event is being planned with parents in Suffolk for Saturday, April 2 at the SmithHaven Mall. The purpose is to reach the community directly and target an audience that often would not attend one of the forums.
Because SmithHaven Mall is private property, this is technically not a demonstration, protest, or rally, but simply a group of people out for a morning of shopping who all just happen to be wearing the same T-shirt. There will be no signs, organized marching or leafleting. It’s a perfect opportunity to do something meaningful and fun about an issue of great importance, and maybe get a little shopping done in the process.
Saturday, April 2, 10AM to 12PM
Again, if you think you can attend any of the above, let us know.
