Going to the Rally? – Need Ideas for Signs?

Going to the January 25 4:30 pm State House Rally against the Bypass and for all the wonderful things we might lose?

You can bring signs that state your objection to the Bypass, but please note that Capitol Police do not allow any handles on the placards, so they should be sturdy enough to hold up and not flex too much.

Need ideas for signs? Here are some slogans that have been proposed.

  • Don’t “Bypass” the Carter Preserve
  • Make history proud!
  • Farm to Table not Farm to Tracks
  • Get on the Right Track for Rhode Island and Drop the Bypass
