Doylestown is accustomed to having hundreds and even thousands of visitors for regular events like festivals, parades and rallies/protests. There is ample parking, but we suggest you allow for a little extra time to find a spot and possibly walk a few blocks to our march starting point.
BUS/TRAIN: SEPTA 55 bus line stops immediately in front of the march starting location. SEPTA Regional Rail - take Doylestown/Lansdale line to the end - walk approx 6 blocks to the march (10 minute walk).
SAFETY: Keep in mind a few things as we march on Doylestown together on Saturday: organizers are in touch with our local police, who will help with public safety and firmly protecting our constitutional rights. Stay on sidewalks, avoid blocking driveways and streets, follow traffic lights, watch out for our little ones throughout and help clean up signs and song sheets. Also, have fun, speak out, make friends and unite for social justice and beloved community!!
There are always a handful of haters who holler at peaceful protesters in Doylestown. Think about what you will you do or say. Ignore or respond with a coherent bold message - consider your stand and response. Please keep in mind this march is kid inclusive - meaning... be bold, be loud, but don't be mean. Our children are watching
