Rules for the March:
Please be respectfully silent during the march.This is a time to join community in grief and mourning. Please don’t disrespect that by initiating chanting or booing.
We encourage you to bring signs and other visual ways of making your voices heard during the protest.
Please take the pandemic seriously.Maintain 6 feet distance from everyone who’s not in your household. There will be plenty of room, so be willing to spread out and expand the footprint of the march!
Bring appropriate facial coverings (mask, cloth, scarf, bandana, etc)
Bring hand sanitizer.
Do NOT attend if you are sick, exhibiting symptoms, or if you believe you have come into contact with someone who had COVID-19.
After closing remarks, please disperse and return home immediately. Do this in the interest of mitigating your risk of coming into contact with the virus.
Plan your visit to the area in advance so that you know how you will be getting home before you arrive at the protest.
Additional Safety Precautions
Despite the above instructions, we are aware that many will choose to come to the protest without any protective equipment. For this reason, we will be providing masks, gloves, and hand sanitizer at the event. However, if you are able to bring your own protective equipment, then you should, in order to help us make supplies last.
Additionally, the fact that the march is silent will further mitigate the risk of spreading the virus, whereas yelling often increases risk of its spread.
For further reading, review our Protestor Safety Guide.
