GETTING TO D.C.
The People’s Climate March has curated a list of busses going to D.C. To find a bus near you, visit peoplesclimate.org/transportation. Additionally, Hazon has a few spots left on their Shabbat friendly bus between New York and D.C. leaving Friday afternoon and returning Sunday. Reserve your spot here.
MARCH MEETUP LOCATION AND SCHEDULE
AJWS will be marching with a group of faith based organizations under the Keepers of the Faith contingent. We will gather at 11:00 a.m. at 3rd St NW between Madison Dr NW and Jefferson Dr NW. When you arrive at that location, look out for a sign marking the Jewish hub, and for a sign with the AJWS logo. The Keepers of the Faith contingent will share musical offerings, reflections, and an opportunity to mingle. The march will officially begin up Pennsylvania Avenue towards the White House at 12:30 p.m.
