LET HER SPEAK Columbus, Ohio

August 8 @ 12:30 pm

We are all very aware of the lack of fair representation in this country. For too long, third parties have been silenced in the national debates. The Commission of Presidential Debates is refusing to allow third parties to debate without polling at 15% in polls they conduct. The caveat? They don’t ask about third party candidates in those polls.

The time to end that is now.

Join us on August 8th at 12:30 pm EST for the first nationwide peaceful protest convoy.

At exactly 12:30 pm EST/ 9:30 am PST all the attendees throughout the nation will be going LIVE on social media to tell their friends and family about what we are doing and why. All the videos and photos will be compiled for a short film after the event.

Consider having a passenger handle the phone/going live so the driver can focus on the road. No worries if we get separated, that’s why you have the route! I will bring printed copies, or you may print the map/directions yourself. If people honk and wave, honk and wave back! Most importantly, HAVE FUN!

The Columbus, Ohio Event will be driving convoy style Down Indianola/Summit/3rd Street and the straight up High Street. Check out the route here:

We will be gathering at Graceland Shopping Center (East Lot near Gamestop/BIBIBOP) with decorated cars, signs, and giveaways. It is requested, though not required that you practice social distancing, wear a (decorated?) mask, and pic up any trash.

Decorate your cars, carry flags, blast music — come together to support fair representation of Jo Jorgensen and the third party in the debates.

30 minutes prior to the convoy will be a time for announcements and interview opportunities. Businesses can participate by sponsoring the decorations on cars or creating pit stops along the route. Local press will be invited to participate as well.

The main goal of this coordinated effort is to get Jo Jorgensen (and all third parties whose names are listed on the ballots) on the debate stage to challenge the Republicans and the Democrats.

There are many sub-goals and benefits, including:
-Spreading the word about Jo Jorgensen and the Libertarian Party to increase awareness to our local community.
-Peacefully gather in our cars to respect society’s concerns over COVID and display the Non-Aggression Principle.
-Show the country we are a lot bigger, more diverse, and more organized than they thought.

Help spread the word by inviting your local friends and family to this convoy!
