Trip Tips

  • Bring earplugs in case a roommate is a snorer!

  • Pack snacks and water for MFL rally and march. You will get hungry!

  • Your cell phone service may not work at the March because of the large number of people. 

  • Bring a portable phone charger/charge cord to the March. You'll most likely need your phone to get back to the hotel.

  • Use the buddy system! Always travel with another person in the group. It is easy to get separated during the march, so it’s a good idea to have a group meeting place at the end of the march. A common meeting place is the Supreme Court Building.
