Guess what’s happening right before our big rally, in the same location? Race for the Cure. Parking could be quite tricky. There are public transportation suggestions in the Multnomah weekly bulletin and on the EcoFaith Recovery website
** If you have mobility issues or need to drop somebody off at the site of the march, itself, heed this info from the event organizers:
There are two off-the-street pull-outs near Tom McCall waterfront park that can accommodate cars for dropping off anyone who can’t walk far. As we expect many attendees, please only pull into these sites if walking is difficult or you are unloading signs, art, instruments, etc.
All drop-off sites are accessed by driving north on SW Naito Pkwy, and will be on the right (towards the park):
– The parking lot at SW Jefferson St. and SW Naito Pkwy
– The bus pull-out between SW Main and SW Salmon
– Columbia Plaza (entrances on 1st and 2nd between SW Clay and SW Columbia)
– Central Parking (entrance on Jefferson between 1st and 2nd)
