FAQ: WHAT TO BRING TO THE MARCH

Most importantly, bring everyone you know! Help make history with the largest climate march ever!

Bring things that help communicate the message:
- Make your own signs and banners and t-shirts and flags -- be creative.
- Carry signs or banners that let people know where you are from -- what organization, what city or state, what country. For help -- download our graphics here!
- Remember: only cardboard tubing or string can be used to carry signs, banners, flags, etc.
- Music that does not need amplification is encouraged.

Items to bring that will make your day more comfortable:
- Bring some light food and drinks -- it will be a long day.
- Wear comfortable shoes for the march and more.
- Check the weather a day or two before you come and dress appropriately.
- If it’s going to be a sunny day, bring sun screen and a hat!

What NOT to bring:
- Do not bring any amplified sound systems.
- Do not bring signs, banners or flags that are carried on wooden sticks or metal rods, only cardboard tubing or string is allowed.
- Do not weigh yourself down with unnecessary clothing or other items that you will have to carry all day long -- travel lightly.
