BREAKING NEWS: Bernie Sanders Coming Back To The Bronx, This Time to Bronx Community College


Welcome2TheBronx has been notified by Bronx Community College officials that Bernie Sanders will be coming to the campus.

So yes it’s short notice but Bernie Sanders is coming back to The Bronx after last week’s massively successful rally in our borough at St Mary’s Park in Mott Haven.

Sanders will be coming to Bronx Community College in University Heights at the historic Gould Memorial Library tomorrow, Saturday April 9th at 1:30PM.

Doors open at 11AM and the following is from the official Bernie Sanders page:

Join Bernie Sanders for a rally in University Heights, New York

This event is free and open to the public. Tickets are not required, but RSVPs are strongly encouraged. Admission is first come, first served. Crowd entrance located via main entrance of auditorium.

For security reasons, please do not bring bags and limit what you bring to small, personal items like keys and cell phones. Weapons, sharp objects, chairs, and signs or banners on sticks will not be allowed through security. Free parking is available on-site in student parking lots, public transportation is also encouraged.

This is pretty big for a presidential candidate to not only come to The Bronx but come back so quickly after one event.

So far, Democratic candidate Senator Bernie Sanders has been the only one to have a massive turnout of support. Ted Cruz received the boot from a school after students wrote an eloquent letter on how they would perform an act of civil disobedience if Cruz was allowed to speak. Then Cruz was protested at Sabrosura 2 by Rebel Diaz.

Yesterday, Hillary Clinton rode the subway for two stops in The Bronx in a very transparent publicity stunt as was John Kasich, Republican presidential candidate and governor of Ohio who showed up to Mike’s Deli on Arthur Avenue in Little Italy.

All of these candidates are clearly pandering so hard with little to no genuine interest in the People of The Bronx.

On the contrary, Senator Bernie Sanders came to The Bronx 3 years ago to learn how Urban Health Plan so successfully provides health care to the poor AND his campaign has been very active in our borough since last year—they didn’t just show up overnight for our votes.

Are you ready for tomorrow’s rally?

Bronx Community College is located at 2155 Univeristy Avenue and get your hiking boots to clime up hills to get to the campus (did you know it was once part of NYU?) You can take Metro North to Morris Heights or University Heights station or the 4 train Burnside or 183rd stations (you can also take the B/D train to 182nd/183rd streets but expect to hike over a long walk). The following buses will also take you to BCC: 3, 12, 18, 32, 40, 42.
