Several different groups in the Los Angeles area are mobilizing to join forces Saturday in Anaheim at the site of the Democratic Convention to show their dismay for the passage of SB277 through the California Senate yesterday.
Groups are all following these guidelines, which activist Marisa Davis Clark says are as follows:
LOCATION: We will gather at south side of the Fountain on the Grand Plaza in the Palm Court area at the Main Entrance to the Center. This area has been reserved for us specifically and we are working with the Police and the Convention Center Security to ensure the safety of us – and most importantly our children. As an additional information and safety measure, we will have designated people available to answer questions, and assist in any way.
PARKING: *I was just informed that the parking garage in under construction. So be prepared for some parking difficulties. Carpool if you can, and be prepared to walk. There may be some extra parking at Disney. Most convention parking is off West Street (Car Park 4,5,6 –see sight map) which is between and Katella and Orangewood –the west end of the convention building. There is a parking lot where many of the trucks dock and there is a parking structure. Cost: $15 – $30
Press will be there 11 to 12. Some parents will be gathering as early as 9 a.m. There will be security for the demonstrator’s protection. But because it is a public space be prepared to bring signs and other soft toys that are moveable. Demonstrators will be wearing red shirts, and if you have red clothing you would like to swap bring it in a plastic garbage bag.
