Thousands expected at Capitol on Saturday, March 24


The Department of Enterprise Services has issued a permit for the 2018 March for Our Lives rally. The event is scheduled from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, March 24, beginning on the north steps of the Legislative Building and concluding at Sylvester Park.

Rally organizers estimate that 2,000 people will attend the event, which will affect traffic and parking on the west Capitol Campus and traffic on Capitol Way. March for Our Lives participants will initially gather at the Legislative Building for about 30 minutes of speeches. The group will then be directed out to Capitol Way and march to Sylvester Park. More speeches and activities are scheduled to take place at Sylvester Park.

The flag circle, the North Parking Diagonal and a block of Washington Street Southeast, between Sylvester Park and the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction building, will be closed during the event.

A complete list of upcoming permitted campus events is available on the Enterprise Services website
