Guardian Angels

The Guardian Angels organization was founded February 13, 1979 by Curtis Sliwa to combat widespread violence and crime on the New York City subways. They were easily identified by their trademark red berets. At first, New York City Mayor Ed Koch publicly opposed the group, which patrolled streets and neighborhoods. This double-sided 4″ X 2.5″ card was handed out on the subways, it’s similar to the cards distributed with sign-language symbols on them.
