Signs: Signs and banners are encouraged with a few caveats. New York City prohibits any signs that use poles, sticks, or handles as they can become weapons. Also, the March organizers would like to remind participants that children and media will be present. Keep it clean and keep it on message. Be creative!

We will have Bryn Mawr banners and will likely have a Seven Sisters banner. If you are representing a different school please bring something to identify yourself! We want this to be as inclusive as possible.

Weather and clothing: Right now, a week out, the forecast is in the high 30s-low 40s and clear. As the route is fairly long and there will be periods of standing be sure to wear comfortable shoes.

Thank you and we can’t wait to see you on the 20th!

    • It is hard to say how long this will last. We expect that the march will go on for several hours. You are of course welcome to leave early.

  1. Smithie here. Thanks for organizing this! We’re planning to meet you and we will have Smith banner and no doubt several 7S banners as well. I’m on Facebook in the 7S group if you want to find me and pm me. Let me know if you need signs and I’ll put the word out
