Initial Logistical Information Released for 
Jan. 20 Mass Protest at the Inauguration

We will post information on the Logistics page as we have it — please come back frequently for updates. 
The demonstration will begin at 7:00 a.m. and continue until after Trump passes at the conclusion of the parade, which will be sometime in the afternoon. Throughout that time, there will be speakers, music, chanting, etc., and then we will be right there when Trump goes by.

We are proceeding with the setup of two stages and two sound systems. The primary stage will be at Navy Memorial (Pennsylvania Ave and 8th St. NW) and the secondary stage will be at Pennsylvania Ave and 14th St. NW. The setup costs are expected to reach $20,000 — please make a donation today to help cover these considerable expenses.
  • When to arrive: To access the demonstration on the Inaugural Parade Route, people will have to pass through checkpoints operated by the Secret Service. The checkpoints will open sometime between 6:00 a.m. and 7:00 a.m., so that's when people can enter the parade route and come to the demonstration. It is recommended to arrive first thing in the morning because the checkpoints may close at some point based on crowd size, and it is crucial that demonstrators get into the parade route and fill up the space along it.
  • Where to enter: The Secret Service says the location of the checkpoints are still subject to change, but as of now the closest listed checkpoint to the Navy Memorial, the main protest stage, is on 7th St. and D St. NW. The closest checkpoint to Freedom Plaza, the secondary stage, is at 14th St. and E St. NW. Both checkpoints are about a block from the rally sites. There may or may not be the ability to walk east and west on Pennsylvania Ave., so it is recommended to use the checkpoint closest to the rally site in case it becomes too congested; definitely enter on the north side of the parade route, as that is where the demonstration will be. Do not enter the parade route from the south side as there will be limited ability to cross Pennsylvania Ave.
  • What to bring: People will have to make sure they don't have anything on the Secret Service list of prohibited items. Please note the list of prohibited items below, which include such as bags (except very small ones) and sign poles. We recommend everyone bring snacks and bottles of water in their pockets.
  • How to get there: Metro will open at 4:00 a.m. and be running extra trains, so getting downtown by that time will be possible. The Archives Metro Station will be closed because it is within the secure zone, but the other stations in that area will be open and running extra service.
