Ten Tips for the March for Life



Be prepared for cold weather!

The streets of Washington, D.C. can be chilly in January. Check the weather forecast before you leave, but bring your warmest winter coat, no matter what! Wear layers – you can add or remove layers depending on the temperature and bring hand warmers, gloves, a hat, and waterproof boots.

Stay connected with your group members.
The crowds are very large at the March for Life, so try to stay physically connected to your group as much as possible. Make sure everyone has at least one leader’s cell phone number, and inform everyone of the time and meeting place after the March is finished. Give everyone a map of the March for Life route, which you can download HERE.

Know your transportation options.
If you’re with a large group with planned transport, make sure everyone is informed of the meeting and pick-up locations. If you’re traveling with a small group, we recommend using public transportation. Check out the March for Life website for more travel information and tips for DC public transportation.

Check out other events throughout the week
Turn your trip to Washington, D.C. into a pro-life pilgrimage by participating in a number of events around our nation’s capital.
The March for Life is hosting events from January 22-24, including:

Bring signs

Share your experience
It’s important to show why we march!
During the event, post pictures and videos of your experience at the March for Life and tag them with #WhyWeMarch and #MarchForLife! We’ll be sharing our favorite posts at all our events, including the March for Life Conference, Youth Rally, Expo, and Rally and on WhyWeMarch.org!

Show your representative that you VOTE pro-life
Traveling to Washington, D.C. for the March for Life gives the pro-life movement a unique opportunity to directly let our nation’s leaders know America is proudly pro-life!
After the March for Life, consider visiting your representative’s office to be a voice for the unborn. Before visiting, be sure to read the official March for Life Action lobbying booklet, Capitol Hill 101.

Thank the amazing volunteers
The March for Life would not be possible if not for the dozens of volunteers who give their time, talents, and service to building a culture of life. We are especially grateful for the continued support and service of the Knights of Columbus. If you pass by one of our amazing volunteers, please give them a big thank you!
