Me Too Springfield has announced they are holding a Motorcade rally to show support for survivors of sexual assault in a socially distanced manner.
The event is scheduled to take place on June 27, 2020 from 1 to 2 p.m.. Cars will be decorated with messages related to “NO MEANS NO” to spread awareness of the needs of victims to fellow drivers.
We understand that some cannot risk exposing themselves to COVID-19, and want to give everyone the opportunity to safely show their support,” President of Me Too Springfield, Jordan Harris, said in a statement. “Because both issues disproportionately impact those with disabilities and lack of access to healthcare, those that are at the highest risk for coronavirus and sexual assault are very similar. We wanted to show support for both.”
The motorcade will meet in the former K-Mart parking lot at 3101 South Glenstone beginning at 12:30 p.m., where a printed map of the route will be given to participants.
Me Too Springfield staff will be handing out masks, gloves, and other personal protection gear.
