Travel Info

Please use the Metro to arrive at the Washington Monument. Recommend locations: Federal Triangle, Smithsonian, Metro Center. For metro info:

Have your metro card easily accessible, before you enter the station. Metro Stations are crowded during rush hour, and even more crowded on the March for Life, during rush hour. Keep in mind that in the Washington Metro system, you need to tap in and tap out of their faregates. One way to alleviate long lines, and avoid the frustration of fellow metro riders is to have your metro card ready, in your hand, before you enter the line for the faregate. Also you do not need to wait for the gates to close after the person in front of you walks through, just ensure you tap your card to the SmarTrip target and proceed through the gate.

Important Notes

While walking, and riding the metro in D.C. please be respectful of residents and commuters.  Let’s show the Nation’s Capital how passionate and polite and respectful pro-lifers really are!  Please read these 6 tips for riding the metro.

Do not leave trash or signs on the grounds of the National Mall, Supreme Court, or Capitol.  This is our Nation’s Capital and we should treat it with dignity and respect. If trash bins are full, please carry your trash or sign with you until you find an available trash bin.

Do not engage with counter-protesters.  Once again, please be respectful of all people and stay focused on the cause of promoting and celebrating life, lovingly, prayerfully, and graciously.

AOH at the second  STAND UP FOR FREEDOM JUNE 8, 2012 In addition to the 15 Catholic bishops scheduled to speak at Nationwide Rally for Religious Freedom locations, countless other influential speakers from all walks of life will also be addressing rallies throughout the country this Friday, June 8th.

Rally Guidelines and Protocols

The Nationwide Rally for Religious Freedom welcomes all participants, of whatever religious persuasion — and even those of no religious faith — who are united by support for and desire to protect the United States Constitution’s First Amendment right of religious liberty currently under attack by the HHS Mandate.

It is not the purpose of these Rallies to promote or advocate for any political party or political movement. Thus Rally participants are asked to not bring political party or candidate signage to the rallies or distribute such literature.

All those who attend are expected to comport themselves peacefully at all times while asserting their Constitutional right to freedom of assembly.

Families, even those with small children, should feel at home and comfortable attending this Rally.

If opposition protests are conducted, Rally participants will not engage counter demonstrators or hecklers with loud verbal argumentation, name-calling or derogatory remarks, nor will such opponents be physically engaged in any way.

Any interference with Rally participants’ rights to freedom of speech and assembly will be referred to police authorities by local Rally leaders.

If Rally participants are approached by media for comment, they should refer reporters and journalists to local rally coordinators for an interview.

2010 MARCH FOR LIFE -WASHINGTON DC
This is a video from a you-tube videographer.  As usual there was little to no news coverage I saw.

And The media in Washington treated it as just a traffic warning on the local news.
How can something like the sacredness of life be reduced to a traffic obstical?

Much like the rest of the AOH, Division 11 supports pro-life activities and every year participates in a march in Washington D.C. We will have more information as it comes in on this very important event.
