The Largest Secular Gathering of the Decade!
A lot of folks are wondering where exactly on the Mall the Reason Rally will take place, so we hope this map helps you out! (Click on the image to enlarge it.)
Hi, I’d like to know the events schedule (speakers first, concert next, vise-versa etc. and is this location the main location for everything such as individules selling t-shirt’s and such and, I heard that there is supposed to be at least one “after party”?
Check the Complementary Events link at the top of the page, and there is also this: http://www.facebook.com/events/268211529908085/
Will there be designated smoking areas at the edges, so of us who cannot tolerate toxic air (yes, even outside) can breathe while enjoying the rally? Ideally, the whole area would be smoke-free, to minimize trash & fire hazards. Any one know? Thanks….
Last I heard it was still a free country and secular movements were not so much into legislating outdoor consumption of tobacco by consenting adults.
@Nigel, good for you.
Freedom does not mean you can do whatever you want even if it hurts someone else. Exercise freedom responsibly so that rules are not needed. Be respectful of the rights of others. The right to breath air without cigarette (and other related combustibles) trumps an individuals right to smoke.
P.S. Debbi did not say that others cannot smoke; she asked if there would be designated areas for you to smoke. Be fair!
Oh Great! Even as a non-believer I’m going to shunned to the out edges of the community. Not that out of respect for others choice not to breath cigarette smoke I move away from the crowd so my smoke wont bother them. But because you don’t think I’m as important as you are.
I’ve been to several rallies on the Mall (Stewart/Colbert the most recent) and I’ve never seen smoking as an issue.
Other than the expensive VIP seats, will plenty of chairs be set up in from of the stage for free, or is it standing room only? Should I bring a chair?
Bring yoru own chairs or blankets. No chairs will be provided except in the VIP section for which you can buy tickets. .
Thank you ! And just in time . . . Would have joined you, if I knew in time, but I was there in my mind and heart. Religion and the constant tug or war to decide who is the most correct is destroying this planet. I applaud you and look forward to hearing from you soon, but please you would not share my email addr with solicitors, right ? I do apologize for even mentioning it, but . . . I most closeley associate with Christians, but only loosely, for my definition of G.O.D.=Great Obscure Diversity. I have studied all of the world’s religions and they all have some very humanitarian values, I just question the need to look for a ‘reward’ for being good. Just be good for goodness sake. Rewards exist in the doing, and sometimes not even there, but is the right thing to do, period.
