Original Post:

From the City of Philadelphia:

"Due to the projected size and scope of the 2018 Women’s March on Philadelphia on January 20th, 2018, the City will be implementing some additional security measures in order to ensure the safety of all in attendance.

Event attendees can enter the march assembly area at Logan Circle at the following locations:
  • 18th Street & Benjamin Franklin Parkway
  • 20th & Race Streets
  • 20th & Vine Streets

Event attendees wishing to attend only the rally portion of the event may access Eakins Oval and the Benjamin Franklin Parkway at the following additional locations:
  • 22nd Street & Benjamin Franklin Parkway (north and south sides)
  • Pennsylvania Avenue & Spring Garden Street
  • 25th Street & Kelly Drive
  • Eakins Oval (south side, near 24th Street)
Items NOT allowed inside the venue include:
  • Weapons and contraband of any kind (regardless of permitting, e.g. Right-to-Carry permits will not be honored and weapons will be confiscated)
  • Fireworks or explosives
  • Illegal or illicit substances of any kind
  • Skateboards, motorized vehicles or scooters (excluding motorized wheelchairs or similar equipment)
  • Laser pointers
  • Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) & drones of any kind
Attendees are strongly discouraged from carrying bags, backpacks, or satchels of any kind. All bags are subject to search, and therefore, the presence of bags could create delays in allowing attendees to enter the event.

In addition, the public should expect congestion in the area. If you are attending the event, make a plan regarding driving, public transit, parking, and supervision of children. Be prepared to wait to enter and exit the area. We recommend that attendees wear comfortable, weather-appropriate attire.

Leave no bags or items unattended. In an emergency or to report a suspicious person, activity or item (a backpack, a package, a container), notify a police officer immediately or call 9-1-1. Do not try to open, move, cover or touch a suspicious item."

If you want to participate, but cannot attend because of a chronic illness or disability there are 2 ways you can still participate ... (you can even do both if you like!)
Disability March

The Disability March is “an online movement that gives people with disabilities and chronic illnesses a way to actively participate in the event via the internet. 

The Disability March site includes prompts for interested participants to submit their names, photos and statements.” The info goes live on the website and is also visible on the Disability March’s twitter feed @DisabilityMarch, creating a virtual archive of participants.”
