On Saturday, April 2nd at 10:00 A.M. we will meet at Independence Mall on 5th St. and Market St. to issue our demand: that Congress take immediate action to end the corruption of big money in our politics and ensure free and fair elections in which every American has an equal voice.
There will be a big kickoff rally with speakers and entertainment. All marchers will check-in at this point and get the information needed to participate in the march. At 12:00 noon, we head out to make history.
