Q: What should I bring to the march? How should I prepare?
A: What to bring: Less is more! No large backpacks. Plastic carriers like the type used at sporting events are preferable. Water, phone, extra charger is helpful but cell service can be spotty at these marches. Signs should not be on sticks – hold your sign or wear your sign. Bring a cookie or lifesavers or something if you are one that needs a sugar boost. Hydration is important but bathrooms are sometimes fraught with long lines or far way.
Although this march has been permitted by the DC Police, you may learn about your free speech rights as a protester by visiting https://www.acludc.org/en/know-your-rights/know-your-rights-demonstrations-and-protests
You and your party may also prepare for cell phone outages by downloading matching walkie talkie apps on your phones and testing them out ahead of time.
