Organizer/AuthorKazu Haga
As many of you know, this coming Friday, February 27th, is Oscar Grant III's Birthday. He would have been 23 years old.

In his honor, CAPE members will be at BART stations across the Bay, passing out fliers encouraging people to remember not only his death but his life. We would like to invite and encourage all of you to join us - for an hour, for two hours, whatever you can give.

You will find a copy of the flier attached to this email. Please download it and print as many copies as you can, and hand it out to folks at BART stops throughout the day. We are especially trying to get folks out during the morning and afternoon rush hours.

If your organization, or you and a couple of friends can "sponsor" a BART stop by committing a couple of hours during the day, please let us know ASAP so we can coordinate everyone's efforts and make sure that we have people all over the BART system.

If you do not have the ability to print fliers, there are several locations where you can pick them up on Friday.

* 7:30AM - 8:45AM - 19th Street Oakland BART Station (look for CAPE members)
* 8:00AM - 10:00AM - Lake Merritt BART Station (look for CAPE members)
* 9:00AM - 3:00PM - Peace Development Fund, 3221 22nd St, 3rd Floor in San Francisco
* 10:00AM - 2:00PM - Leadership Excellence, 1924 Franklin St in Oakland
* 12:30PM - 1:30PM - 19th Street Oakland BART Station (look for CAPE members)
* 4:00PM - 6:00PM - Ashby BART Station (look for CAPE members)
* 5:30PM - 6:30PM - 19th Street Oakland BART Station (look for CAPE members)
* Throughout the Day - Fruitvale BART

Finally, we would like to encourage everyone to wear blue ribbons or armbands all day (blue was Oscar's favorite color).

Thank you for all you do. We look forward to seeing you out there!
