Solidarity Car Parade

July 11, 2020 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm

We’re having a car parade!

Join us this Saturday from 12:30 – 2:00 pm for a UA faculty car parade to support the core mission of the university: education!

We’ll rally at Lot 9 by InfoCision Stadium on E. Exchange Street, between S. Union and Spicer. Route maps will be distributed to participants at the event.

Akron-AAUP is advocating for shared sacrifice during this crisis to ensure high-quality education at Akron is prioritized and sustainable. Let’s show the administration that we are here for our students — after all, students are here for us. The educational mission needs to be protected!

During our parade we need to be visible – and loud! Write on your windows or make big signs and tape them to the inside windows of your car. Decorate your car with balloons or streamers. Bring noise makers — kazoos, pots and pans (and someone to bang on them!), or just get ready to blow your horn in support of our students and the central mission of The University of Akron.

We can’t wait to see you Saturday!

In Solidarity,

The Communications Committee of Akron-AAUP

P.S. For more information, please read our position paper on athletic spending, and sign our open letter to protect education at UA.
