What:  Come with your cellphone and recite the single beautiful sentence that is the 1st Amendment, and say it again and again for a half hour, in a group of people who are doing the same thing.
Often:  Mobbers will call a friend who is sitting with the text of the amendment, who acts as a “prompter.”  Then again, it’s easy to just call another mobber at the scene, and the two of you can help each other through the words.
When and Where:  6:30 to 7 PM, Tuesday at the Path Station at the World Trade Center, walk down the steps from Church Street, opposite Trinity Church, at the northeast corner of GZ.  There is a large room there which connects the subways to the train.
How:  Don’t greet anyone as you begin to go through the words, just let the words take you:
How often:  Every Tuesday.  This is the 9th consecutive Tuesday we have done this. We will continue through the summer.
