Where and when does the march start?
The march kicks off on Saturday, March 24 at 9am at 603 South Spring Street (which happens to be the address of a Starbucks), in Downtown near Pershing Square. Participants will march through Downtown LA to City Hall, before meeting for the rally at Grand Park; as for the route, it hasn’t been shared yet, so plan to just follow the crowd. The event is slated to wrap up by 1pm.
There are actually six other smaller marches happening in Los Angeles County in Santa Monica, Manhattan Beach, Studio City, Burbank, Long Beach, and Santa Clarita; the start times on those vary, though, so you'll want to double-check the details on the one you want to attend before showing up on Saturday.
What is the lineup of speakers?
Students from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School will get on the mic to share their thoughts, with additional speakers including Rebecca Mieliwocki (the 2012 National Teacher of the Year under President Obama) and William LeGate, the young entrepreneur who’s been one of the leaders of the #BoycottNRA movement on Twitter. You can also expect musical performances by Charlie Puth, Rita Ora, and others.
How do I get there?
While we won’t know if the event will draw Women’s March numbers until it happens, at last check, the LA march’s Facebook page had 30,000 users “interested,” while another nearly 13,000 had RSVP’d that they’re attending. No matter what, you’re not going to want to drive your own car. Lyft has publicly announced that it will give free rides to those attending the marches (note that riders under 18 must be accompanied by an adult), but we’ve got to imagine the wait times for gratis rides will be longer than usual. A solid non-automobile option is the Metro Rail, which you can take to the Pershing Square station, an easy five-minute walk to the starting point.
