Q: HOW SHOULD I PACK FOR THE MARCH?

A: Historically, winter has served up all kinds of Washington weather during the March for Life – sometimes sunshine and balmy temperatures, but more often cold and wind, rain and snow. In the inaugural year of Evangelicals for Life, the historic blizzard of 2016 bore down on Washington even as the March was underway. While that storm was record-breaking in scope, it is a reminder that any kind of weather is possible in late January in D.C.

So what to expect? The best advice: Pray for the best, but prepare for the worst.

With that in mind, here are some key items to pack for the March:

  • Winter coat
  • Layers of clothing, including thermals
  • Hat or ear warmers
  • Scarf
  • Gloves
  • Hand and feet warmers
  • Warm socks
  • Boots
  • Umbrella
  • Poncho

Q: HOW DO I GET FROM EVANGELICALS FOR LIFE TO THE MARCH FOR LIFE ON FRIDAY?

A: The March for Life will be held Friday, January 19, 2018, on the National Mall, during a block of time built into the Evangelicals for Life conference. All EFL attendees who are able to march are encouraged to do so.

The rally/march site is a short walk from the JW Marriott. As you exit through the main hotel entrance, walk south (turn left) along 14th Street for approximately one block, until you reach Constitution Avenue. Then turn right at Constitution and proceed west for one block.

More details on the March for Life are available here.

Q: I HAVE SOME SPARE TIME WHILE I’M IN WASHINGTON, D.C. WHAT ARE SOME SITES I SHOULD SEE?

A: White House and U.S. Capitol building tours can be scheduled through your U.S. representative. However, tours are generally booked well in advance, so it is it advisable to request a tour as far in advance as possible. You can find your representative’s information here.

For a different view of the capital’s sites, consider taking a guided or self-guided walking tour of the National Mall. The Mall stretches about two miles from the Capitol building to the Lincoln Memorial. Packed in and around that lengthy stretch are numerous monuments of history and working government buildings. While the Capitol and National Park Police patrol these areas, visitors should remain alert and use common sense when walking at night.

Most sites and museums along the Mall are located within walking distance of Metro stations.
