The car caravan is set for Saturday, February 6th at 1:00 pm and will start at the Girsh Park baseball fields parking lot on Phelps Road (between Pacific Oaks & Mills Way), Goleta.
After cars are decked out with signs, placards and writing with washable chalk, the caravan will proceed down Hollister Ave. to upper State Street and will meet at the midway point at the office of Congressmember Salud Carbajal on Hope Ave., Santa Barbara.
From there, the caravan will proceed down State Street, Milpas Street and Cabrillo Blvd., and will end at the parking lot of the Santa Barbara City College football field at Shoreline Dr. & Loma Alta Dr.
Local sponsors of this action are Physicians for a National Health Program (PNHP-Santa Barbara), Democratic Socialists of America (DSA-Santa Barbara) and Healthcare for All-California (HCA-CA-Santa Barbara).
