Important stuff

One last very – very important – difference,  the People’s Climate Rally – Cincinnati on June 10th will ONLY be a rally at Fountain Square. Organizers have planned for all speaking and activity to occur with the crowd on Fountain Square. There will be no plans to have attendees march or process to another venue. Once the rally is over on Fountain Square, we will ask the participants to disperse, return to their cars, in a peaceful manner

This event and its participants must follow the tenants of our permit and its limits and obey all traffic laws and follow directions from the police and city officials.  This event does not sanction civil disobedience of any kind. Do not march in the street or block the sidewalk.

If you have a medical emergency or need assistance of that nature call 911.

This is a family friendly event.

Some logistics stuff about the day of the April 29th Rally:

Where can I park?

There are numerous parking lots, garages and meters around Fountain Square. The best way to check for nearby parking is to download the parking app: bestparking.com.  You can also take metro or the streetcar. Carpooling is an environmentally friendly option, too.

Can I bring a sign?

Do bring a sign.  (Walking on the sidewalk with a sign is legal, just be sure that you don’t block the sidewalk, jaywalk or interfere with traffic while coming to or leaving the event.)

Bring water in a re-useable container and any snacks in a re-useable container.  We encourage making this a recyclable, zero waste event!
