This one's easy. The best way you can support our march is by showing up!
Here's the route: On Saturday, October 4, the march procession will form at the Lincoln Memorial at 11:45 a.m. At noon, we will proceed over the following route: north on Constitution Avenue to 15th Street; north on 15th Street to H Street; and then west on H Street to Lafayette Park for the rally before the White House. On a stage donated by Hargrove Inc., special keynote speakers will deliver powerful remarks highlighting the fight to end the ivory trade to save elephants from extinction.
Familiarize yourself with all the details via our Facebook event page. Mark your calendar. Make any travel arrangements necessary. And if you have questions about how to get anywhere, or other logistics, feel free to post them here or on Facebook – we'll make sure you get where you need to be!
2. Spread the Word.
The more people we have marching, the bigger a statement we make, especially here in our Nation's capital. Let's let it be known loud and clear: the majority of Americans support an ivory sales ban to protect elephants.
So please, invite everyone you know, and then make them invite everyone they know, too! You can share the link to the march on social media, invite all your contacts through our Facebook event page, tweet about the march on Twitter, send emails, post a flier, contact your local newspapers with a 250-word letter to the editor on why you are marching against extinction in 2014 – it all helps!
