Sanders rally scheduled for 7 p.m. Monday at UB

Bernie Sanders will hold a rally at the University at Buffalo Monday evening.

The Vermont senator is expected to discuss a wide range of issues, at his “Future to Believe In Rally,” when the program begins at 7 p.m.

His talking points typically include getting big money out of politics, his plan to make public colleges and universities tuition-free, combatting climate change and ensuring universal health care.

Doors will open at 4 p.m. Monday for Sanders’ rally at Alumni Arena on the North Campus.



The event is free and open to the public, but RSVPs are strongly encouraged through Sanders' website. Admission is first come, first served.

Public entry will be through the main front doors of the arena.

For security reasons, those attending are asked not bring bags and limit what you bring to small, personal items like keys and cell phones.

Weapons, sharp objects, chairs, umbrellas, and signs or banners on sticks will not be allowed through security.

Very limited parking will be available on-site after 3 p.m. Carpooling and taking public transit is strongly encouraged.

The NFTA Bus, Campus UB Blue Line Shuttle and Stampede Bus all stop at or near the arena.

Representatives of National Nurses United, an organization of registered nurses, will be in the Buffalo area Friday as part of their “#BernieBus tour.” The group is making stops to visit with UB students, nurses at Erie County Medical Center and residents at Buffalo City Hall.

Sanders has a rally Friday afternoon in Brooklyn with what his campaign says is a special appearance by actor Mark Ruffalo.

Sanders has a second rally Friday in Brooklyn with an appearance by actress Susan Sarandon.

He also has a “community conversation” scheduled for Saturday at the Apollo Theater in Harlem.
