Dear Members and Friends of PLAGAL,
Due to issues out of our control neither Jackie nor I will be able to lead the PLAGAL contingency at the March for Life this year. Our annual meeting will be postponed until June around the time of Capital Pride. I have included information from allied pro-life groups whom gladly will accept our members to march along with them.
Consistent Life Contingent
Meet up with the Consistent Life contingent between 11:30 and noon in front of the Sculpture Garden on Constitution Ave. NW near 7th St. Archives is the nearest Metro station. After noon, we will head towards the rally site. If you miss us, you can try calling 301-943-6406, but such large events sometimes overwhelm the cell phone system. After the rally, we will march to the Supreme Court with the rest of the crowd. You can let us know you plan to join the contingent by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or, for Facebook members, signing up at the CL contingent event page.
Consistent Life- After the March
After the March, you are invited to join us in the Cory Conference Room at William Penn House, 515 E. Capitol St. SE, just a few blocks east of the Supreme Court. There will be a labeled buzzer for you to ring to be let in. We expect people to drift in, so be patient if you're on the early side. We have reserved the room from 2:30 PM to 7 PM. We will use this opportunity to get to know each other and to share experiences and ideas informally. We are suggesting a “core time” of 3:30-5:30, in which we hope to include discussion of local/area organizing and actions (both general ideas for implementation anywhere and steps to take in the DC metropolitan area). We probably will either order in some food or go out to eat together at some point. All those who support or who are curious about the consistent life ethic are welcome. We hope to have people participating from several CL member groups. You can let us know you plan to join the contingent by emailing email@example.com or, for Facebook members, signing up at the gathering event page.
Note: William Penn House also has limited hostel-type accommodations. Check their Web site if interested in inexpensive lodging while in Washington.
Democrats for Life
Democrats for Life of America is holding a roundtable discussion from 10 AM to Noon at the Holiday Inn Washington-Capitol, 550 C St. SW. Cost is $25.
On Saturday, we'll be ditching the computers and hitting the streets of DC, engaging the residents of our nation's capital in pro-life outreach. If you are interested in joining us, please email PhilVegEdge@gmail.com.We will be having a meetup Saturday night at 10:30 pm at T.G.I. Friday's. The address is 2100 Pennsylvania Ave NW (at 21st St) and is just two blocks from the Foggy Bottom/GWU metro station. The meetup is open to anyone, but please let Phil know beforehand so we can have a rough estimate of how many people are coming.
For Monday's march, we will be meeting up at 12:00 pm on the north side of Constitution Ave NW, between 3rd and 4th st. We will have a SecularProLife.org banner and signs. If you plan to be there, email PhilVegEdge@gmail.com ahead of time, and we'll send you a phone number just in case you have any trouble finding us.
