We the People Convention Logistics

We're only five days away from NH Rebellion's We the People Convention!  Many of you have already pre-registered online, and we are looking forward to seeing you in Manchester next weekend - the temporary center of the political universe.  With your help, we will make this the number one issue in the 2016 presidential race.

Because space is limited in the tent, we're asking that you take an additional step to register for the "ticket block" times during which you will attend over the course of the weekend.  This allows us to know who will be there at specific times throughout the weekend. 

Schedule of Speakers & Activities
It's an amazing lineup!  We have over 30 campaign finance reform speakers coming from all over the country, plus Presidential, U.S. Senate and U.S. Congress candidates!     

See the full schedule for Friday, Feb. 5

Friday Noon - 6,  Friday 6-9, Saturday 8-Noon, Saturday Noon- 5, Saturday, 6-9, Sunday 8 - Noon.  You can register for as many ticket blocks as you'd like.
We are providing simple meals while you visit the We the People Convention, including vegetarian options at each meal.   You must be signed up for the ticket block in which the meal is served so we can get a count.    Per the City of Manchester, there is no alcohol served or brought into the tent.

What to Wear
Although we are heating the tent, we're thinking that the tent will be in the 60s most of the time.    We recommend you dress in layers you can shed or add as the temperature changes, and wear a hat.   We are tarping the floor to keep your feet dry and the turf in good condition.   

On-street public parking is available around Veteran's Park.  Please consult this map for city parking garages
Friday afternoon until 5 p.m., on street and city parking garage parking will be PAY parking.  After 5 p.m., parking is free.
Saturday, on street and city garage parking is free, EXCEPT for parking on Elm Street which is pay until 5 p.m.

We will have portable toilets immediately adjacent to the tent, including one handicapped unit.  Apologies in advance that they won't be as cozy as the tent.  We're the NH Rebellion -- cold is our middle name!

Walk to the Republican Debate
Optional:  Saturday 3 p.m., staffer Xanni Brown is going to lead willing NHR walkers for a demonstration action at the Republican debate at St. Anselm's college.   The walk is 3.5 miles, and you'll be issued a safety vest and headlamp.   There will be a brief stop for coffee and hot chocolate on the way.  Weather is likely to be in the high 30s.   We expect to begin transporting walkers back to the tent at about 6:15. 

Pass the Word!
We want our tent to be full for the whole weekend.   We ask that you please pass the word to your friends and family and urge them to attend the We the People Convention to Fight Big Money politics. Registration is still open!     The picture above can also be downloaded, printed out and put up as a poster in your town.  Or go on Facebook and change your profile picture to promote the event.

Can't wait to see you all at the big event!
