Is this March accessible? . . .
Our organizing team is working hard to make sure that this march is inclusive of people with disabilities. Please email [email protected] if you have a specific request not addressed in the information below, and we will work to make sure that it is fulfilled. Please see the accessibility page for more information.
- An ADA seating section will be located directly in front of the stage and will be open to those who require it. Entrance to the ADA seating section is at 14th and Pennsylvania NW. Seating is limited and will be first come, first serve.
- All volunteers will be trained to provide general support for folks with disabilities. We will also have a specific volunteer crew to support participants with disabilities and give directional information. These volunteers will be wearing orange arm bands and orange stickers reading "Accessibility."
- American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation will be provided on the stage, and picture-in-picture and CART in English will be available on the jumbotrons. Audio description will also be provided via head set by Metropolitan Washington Ear. There will be a limited supply of headsets that individuals can borrow at the ADA tent.
- An ADA tent will have smell sensitivity masks, a generator dedicated to recharging chairs, emergency blankets, audio description headsets, water, snacks, and other support items available.
- ADA vans will pick up passengers on the corner of 10th and PA Ave NW if you are coming in by bus. If you are taking the metro to Metro Center, get off at the 13th and F Street NW exit to get on the accessible van. After the rally, the ADA vans will drop folks off at the ADA parking area and the Metro Center metro stop (which has a functioning elevator).
- Every area where porta-potties are located will also have ADA accessible porta-potties.
- Additional accessible porta-potties will be provided in the ADA section.
How do I get to the gathering location? . . .
You can use any of the following metros to enter the gathering location:
- Metro Center (Red/Blue/Orange/Silver)
- Federal Triangle (Blue/Orange/Silver)
How do I use the metro? . . .
The Metro system in D.C. is relatively easy to use, and connects to various regional transit systems. We recommend buying a D.C. Metro card in advance. Many people purchasing cards at once at the Metro machines can lead to long lines and delays. You can buy cards in advance here.
Pro Tip: Bring good walking shoes and lots of patience. You can find more information about the DC area bus and metro options here.
What about parking? . . .
Out-of-town cars should consider parking at Metro Stations outside the city and taking the metro into downtown (map here). Downtown parking is tight, even on the weekends, and parking lots are expensive but Metro offers free parking on the weekends!
What about trains and other forms of transport? . . .
Amtrak has good service into D.C., and in fact, they offer group sales with discounted group rates. If you have 75 people you can sometimes reserve an entire car (bonus: use it as an organizing space too!) You can find our more about that on Amtrak’s website.
There are also many services that offer regional bus transit – you can buy individual seats, or also sometimes group rates. Costs can be very reasonable, especially if you buy early. A few options to consider are GoTo Bus, MegaBus, and BoltBus.
