Three easy and effective ways to make your car “speak out” for you
COVID-19 has changed a lot of things including the way people protest. Among various forms of protest, the car caravan has risen to be a popular and safe choice these days. With the mission to defeat Prop 16 and defend Prop 209, Californians for Equal Rights (CFER) has led several grassroots campaigns across the California, such as the car caravan protest in Cupertino on July 3, Fremont on July 11, and Pleasanton on July 18. If you are concerned about preferential treatment by government in public education, public employment, and public contracting, you should definitely check out CFER’s website for more details about Prop 16 and Prop 209, and join our upcoming car caravan protests. And here are some tips about how to make your car “speak out” during a car caravan!

How to add a flag to your car:
Remember to follow U.S. flag etiquette – “A single flag should fly from the right (passenger) side of the vehicle. If two flags are displayed, it’s okay to put one on each side, but they should be mounted at the same height and be hung in the same way.
The flag should be displayed with the stars in the upper left-hand corner, with an important exception. A flag displayed on the passenger side of a vehicle should show the stars at the upper right-hand corner.”
Here is a complete guide with suggestions on how to fly the flag
Write on your car with liquid chalk markers
Liquid chalk markers can be easily purchased online or in store, and their colors are so vivid when writing on car windows. Very easy to wipe off too.
Spell your words with painter tape
Painter tape won’t damage your car body and is also easy to peel off.
Make eye-catching posters or signs
Protests can be artistic. All you need is a creative mind to make it happen.
