Still Thirty Seats Left on Buses to DC for Nov. 12 DACA Rally


Seventy-five Long Islanders have signed up for the free bus ride to Washington for the November 12 rally for DACA at the Supreme Court. As of this afternoon, there are five seats left on the Suffolk bus and 25 left on the Nassau bus (leaving from Westbury).

The New York Immigration Coalition is offering free rides from Long Island to the rally in Washington on Nov. 12, 2019 to SAVE DACA. If you want to ride with us, you must sign up here. The buses are now 75% filled, so don’t wait. Sign up today.

On November 12, 2019, join us as we rally for DACA & TPS at the Supreme Court of the United States. The Court will be hearing oral arguments on ending DACA that morning. In order to ensure that we cover as wide a range of travel needs as possible, we require individual registration of each participant. If your organization is registering several people, click “submit another response” once you’ve finished the form for yourself or another participant to create a new submission for the next person you want to sign up.

Please note that while departure times have not been set, the bus is likely to leave between 1AM and 3AM on November 12. We anticipate leaving from the Patchogue/Farmingville, Huntington, and Westbury areas, but details will be sent later.
