Ridin’ with Biden East Cooper
East Cooper Democrats, SC Women for Biden and Harris, and Blue Plate Special East Cooper present: Ridin’ with Biden!

We are strong! We are mighty! We are committed! And we are everywhere! So let’s show it by joining together for a caravan where we will fly our flags and display our bumper stickers and let East Cooper Charleston know that we will Build Back Better!

Also–we are NOT a parade. We will be obeying all traffic laws and may get separated. We will be obeying the posted speed limits and it is likely that if we get separated it will be temporary. Plus, we will all have maps. We highly suggest that drivers have a co-pilot to read the map.
