WHAT:
This Saturday, April 19th, the Bus User Safety at Southridge (BUSS) Coalition will conduct an Easter Promenade on the North Sidewalk outside the Southridge Shopping Mall. This Easter Parade will remind Milwaukee shoppers that Milwaukee County citizens hold dear to their values of caring for the elderly, physically impaired and disabled veterans. During Easter Saturday when the Judeo-Christian Community is commemorating both Passover and the Easter Triduum of prayer and preparation, BUSS will stand firm to protect the community of transit users from the discrimination displayed by Simon Co and managers of Southridge.

Join this walk starting at the bus stop on the North Side of Southridge Parking lot proceeding to the sidewalk along Edgerton.

The Easter parade kicks off at Noon and will involve a walk along the length of the north side walk going west to 76th Street and returning. The event will end before two o-clock p.m. Bring your Easter bonnet and signs of support. The members of the Organization along with elected leaders will join the participants.
