We have been indicating that there would be a CLE public witness opportunity on the afternoon of March 9. We have now developed those plans.
Our member group Dorothy Day Catholic Worker is holding a liturgy in front of the White House each Friday during Lent from 12 Noon to 1 PM. So we will start our public witness with that event. Following the White House liturgy, we will walk to the military recruiting office at 14th and L Sts. NW. After spending some time there, we will walk to Planned Parenthood, 1108 16th St. NW, where we will take the 2-3 PM shift of the 40 Days for Life witness there. All aspects of the public witness are fully legal.
We will have the Consistent Life banner and some CLE signs. Feel free to bring your own sign if you wish. We invite you to come for all or a portion of the public witness, whether or not you are able to attend the Conference.
Member group Dorothy Day Catholic Worker (DDCW) is doing much for the work for the public witness. For more information, contact Kevin Mason by email or by phone at DDCW at 202-882-9649.
Planned Parenthood is about 2 blocks from the Farragut North Metro Station. To get to the 4-H Center for the Conference after the public witness, take the Red Line from Farragut North to Friendship Heights, and then take the L8 Metrobus (marked Aspen Hill) or Ride-On bus 1 or 11.
