Press Release

    March on D.C. Event Update

    09/02/2009

    With thousands registered online at 912dc.org and many more expected from all corners of the country, the 912 Taxpayer March on Washington is going to be a huge, historic event.  There is a lot going on both that Saturday and the two days prior so please read the information below carefully to ensure you don’t miss out on anything. 

    Thursday, September 10 Liberty Summit

    If you haven’t registered for the Liberty Summit yet, please do so here.  The Liberty Summit will feature panels on healthcare, cap and trade, bailouts, and grassroots advocacy.  Speakers include prominent policy and grassroots organizing experts.  Help save us time and money by downloading a copy of your Liberty Summit Action kit here.  The kit includes policy research, talking points, and important information about visiting your Senators and Representatives.

    The Liberty Summit will be held at the D.C. Armory (see map) and will start at 9:00 am on September 10.  The Armory is conveniently located on the Orange and Blue Metro Lines near RFK stadium.  BUSES will also be available between 8am and 9am and will pick up at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill, the Marriott at Metro Center, and the Courtyard Washington. This event is an important chance to learn more about the issues facing our country, ask questions of experts, and gain important communication tools.

    Following the Liberty Summit, FreedomWorks and the RSC are co-sponsoring a press conference at Upper Senate Park and everyone is encouraged to visit your legislators to tell them in person to oppose the big-government tax and spend plans coming from Congress.

    Friday, Sept. 11

    On Friday, several local organizations are holding training sessions where you can learn how to raise money for a grassroots organization, how to communicate effectively online, and how to effectively advocate on behalf of capitalism and free markets.  Be sure to check out the agenda and register online to secure your place.

    Saturday, Sept. 12 Taxpayer March on Washington

    Saturday is the main event and crowds will be gathering at Freedom Plaza  (see map) at 9:00 am.  There will be speakers and music until the march kicks off at 11:30 and proceeds down Pennsylvania Avenue to the West Front Lawn of the Capitol.  The official rally will begin at 1:00 p.m.  A ticket is not required for the march or rally, registering helps us estimate attendance.

    Be sure to check the website for bus drop off information and a list of things you can bring.

    Thank you for being a part of this important event.  Regularly checking the website and being a part of your state’s social network is the best way to be sure you have all the information you need and ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable time.

    It’s not too late to help support the 9/12 March on Washington.  As the crowds grow, there are additional needs that must be met.  Please consider making a gift today.

    See you September 12!
