March Weekend Schedule, Map

We are working hard to plan an exciting weekend, filled with 
  • inspirational speakers and performers; 
  • opportunities to network with others actively engaged in seeking justice for the victims of police and vigilante violence; and
  • meaningful actions engaging elected and appointed officials who have the power to make necessary changes in how we are policed, and in the consequences for improper use of deadly force.
If you haven’t already done so, it is time to solidify your travel and accommodation
arrangements. You don’t want to miss out on this historic inaugural march!
