Marching

I'm joining the March! How do I register? What do I pack?
You can register to march with us here. 

This is a list of essential items that marchers should bring with them:

Warm and cool clothes

Sleeping bag and/or pillow

Comfortable walking shoes

Clean socks

Toiletry supplies

Towel (showers are rarely, but sometimes available.)

Sunscreen/bug spray

Poncho

We will do our best to accommodate any supplies that marchers’ need during our journey.

 

Do I have to carry my bags?
No! There will be vehicle support to transport marchers’ baggage during the march to our host location each evening.

Do I have to march the entire length of the journey?
No! Marchers can join us for one block, one mile, or the entire journey.

Where are we staying?
We secure housing each night for all marchers – generally at churches or social justice organization. However, that does not always mean a bed. Often, we sleep on the floor. If you need further accommodation, we can help find and book a hotel, but cannot pay for marchers’ hotels.

Do I have to raise money?
While it is not required, we do ask that marchers fundraise and collect donations to help offset the cost of the March and help provide for future actions. 

Are meals provided?
Yes! We will provide all meals and snacks. Our lovely cook, Chef Candace, prepares delicious lunches and snacks for us each day and our evening hosts (generally) provide dinner. Make sure to note all allergies and food specifications when registering to march. We will always accommodate all food issues to make sure that everyone has something to eat.

I am not able to walk long distances. Are there other ways that I can help during the march?
For those that cannot walk long distances, there are other ways to help during the march. We need help with things like preparing meals and driving support vehicles. Indicate on your registration if you are interested in joining the march as non-walker.

 

What if I injure myself during the march?
We will have medics available for minor injuries incurred during the march. If you are a medic, nurse, doctor or are CPR certified and are interested in being a part of the medical team, please make a note when you are registering for the march.
