We will be meeting at 9:15 am - 10:00 am at the Northeast corner of Spirit of Justice Park, C Street SE and New Jersey Avenue SE. One block from the Capitol South Metro Station on the blue line. From there, we will move to join the Women's March on Washington, which begins at 10:00am.
From the march organizers: Backpacks may be searched and nontransparent backpacks may be confiscated. We recommend bringing a small purse or a transparent backpack. Anything that could be used as a weapon is not allowed. If you are making signs, remember that sharp sticks to hold up a sign are included in this. Use foam-board signs, and you could use a soft neck strap instead.
