Please join family, friends, and neighbors of Blanca on Thursday, September 11, 2008 for a rally, candlelight procession, and ghost bike installation ceremony. We will gather at 7 PM at the west end of Palmer Square, 2200 N. Kedzie Blvd.; at 7:30 we will hear from family, friends, and representatives of Logan Square Walks and the Chicagoland Bicycle Federation, and then proceed with a candlelight procession to the intersection of Armitage and Kedzie where a ghost bike for Blanca will be installed.
Please come out and show your support for Blanca’s family and friends, and for safer streets for our most vulnerable users.
