Open discussion forum for all genital autonomy advocates.
We will be covering topics currently relevant to the movement and invite all to lend a voice with your thoughts and experiences to make this a unique time of collaboration and learning from one another.
[Children are welcome to play nearby on the lawn during this discussion time.]

Friday, March 28
7:30pm Dinner at Tortilla Coast
400 First Street SE

Note: Due to large numbers at GIAW on Friday night and current lack of funding for catering a large dinner on this evening, we will be dining together in smaller groups. Grab a friend and follow us downtown! There will be a 'foreskin friendly bar hop' taking place after dinner on Friday night for those who wish to join.

** March from U.S. Capitol to The White House ** 
Saturday, March 29, 2014
West Lawn of U.S. Capitol
GIAW leaders will remain at the Capitol demonstrating until dark.
There are restaurants nearby (in both directions, approximately 3 blocks away) for those with children
or individuals who do not have food on hand. It is a good idea to bring water and snacks along on the march.
We welcome you to march back to the Capitol Hill area with us after dark,
or return any borrowed signs to the wagon and take Metro Central to your destination.
[Additional March Details to Follow]

Sunday, March 30 - Tuesday, April 1
White House Sidewalk
Permits have been obtained to demonstrate in front of the White House between the hours of 8:00am to 11:00pm on each of these days (Sunday, Monday, Tuesday). If you will be extending your time in D.C., you are welcome to join us here. Please see David Wilson for details.

Funding is primarily used to purchase professionally made banners and signs, the graphics work that goes into them, and thousands of items (bracelets, buttons, informational cards, postcards, flyers, brochures, samples of products) that are handed out over the course of the GIAW week to parents, tourists, news crews, professionals in health and medicine, and politicians. It is essential to have enough engaging items on hand for large groups that are quality made so these individuals want to take items (and keep and share). Seed planting only goes so far if the message does not cultivate into action back home. Please help us make GIAW 2014 a future baby-saving success!

Thank you!

If there is a sign or banner you would like to see in D.C., please write to SavingSons@gmail.com and we will ensure our graphics team creates something that matches your request. You are welcome to browse previous signs and banners at: http://www.savingsons.org/2007/01/signs-and-banners.html
