Philadelphia Kickoff Rally

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.

RSVP TO BE AT THE KICKOFF RALLY!

How can I get to Philadelphia?

Rail:

Philadelphia is served by Amtrak, which operates rail service along the Northeast Corridor stretching from Boston to Washington, and other major cities in the U.S.and Canada.

Plane:

There is an extensive network of public transit, taxicab, and shuttle services from Philadelphia International Airport, located just 7.2 miles southwest of downtown Philadelphia. SEPTA (the region's public transit system) provides bus and regional rail service from the Airport to downtown Philadelphia and points beyond.

Car or Bus:

Philadelphia is a convenient destination by car or bus and is less than a day’s drive away for the majority of the East Coast.

For people driving their own car, the Philadelphia Airport has great long-term parking options, with many inexpensive hotel accommodations nearby.

If you are looking to hitch a ride or can make space in your vehicle for others, a Philadelphia ride-sharing bulletin board will be online shortly.

    I hope you poor people get arrested. Enough with this stupid ‘revolution’ shit. Kind of reminds me of Stalin.

    I wish I could be there! Layed up with herniated disk in back. Good luck to all of you! Stay strong, and stay safe!

    @justin Smith Any info on when ride-sharing to Philadelphia will be working? It’s a six hour drive and right now I don’t even know if I have a ride there.

    Hey @jill—I know it’s frustrating to wait around for answers to questions. Sorry for the delay: we’re a small & overstretched team working a lot of 15 hour days to make this happen. Thanks for your patience.

    As the Digital Coordinator for the campaign, I’m ultimately responsible for database development, digital strategy, social media management, and website development (e.g. keeping up with comments on all 67 of the pages on our site).

    In terms of rally details, the latest updates on our rally schedule will be up today!

    This website feels abandoned as no one is answering questions. Whose responsibility was it to respond to comments/questions?

    Hi does anyone have info about the rally? Who will be speaking?

    I’m volunteered for the whole march and the sit-in as well as getting arrested. I just need a way to get to Philadelphia. When is that ride-share bulletin board coming?
