Event Details:

A small, yet determined and very efficient team of Mothers Out Front volunteers and staff are planning a Banner Drop (Mothers Out Front banner and one with a clear message for wind power) at Yankee Stadium, when they play the Red Sox.  This is one of the most packed games in the series for the year and is occurring on Wednesday, September 28th.   We have been in touch with the Yankees about our plans to do this - and as long as we behave we will have no problems with this action.  The rules for banner drops at Yankee Stadium are:

  • We cannot be disruptive (we want this to be a fun - family friendly event)

  • Banners cannot be political


The plan, purpose and goals of the event:

  • To raise the consciousness and awareness of  Mothers Out Front and our goal of more wind power by:

    • Taking a walk/march together around the stadium (outside the gates) with our banners, postcards and sign-up sheets

    • Having at least 30 Mothers Out Front  mothers, grandmothers and allies, sitting all *together in our t-shirts

    • Seeing the Yankees welcome Mothers Out Front on their billboard/jumbo tron

    • Dropping our banner during the game - along with a banner with a call for wind power

    • Driving people to action to learn more about offshore wind potential in New York State and what they can do to participate in switching to a renewable energy economy

  • HAVE FUN! while taking standing up and taking action for clean and renewable energy
