Coming Soon: Reason Rally 2

I’m happy to announce that the Board of the Reason Rally Coalition is working on the next Reason Rally. We have a new board of experienced activists working together to make the next event even better than the first. Please watch this page for more information in the coming weeks. And get excited. #reasonrally2 (not pictured: David Tamayo, Jamila Bey, Dan Barker)

Buy Reason Rally Videos

We’re still working on this so bear with us; ALL of the videos are now uploaded and ready.  The videos are able to be downloaded as well.  Currently the streaming player requires Adobe Flash to work.  Please bear with the loading screen; these large files may take a few moments to begin streaming; a delay is considered normal. I am still investigating (free) HTML5 based players.


Coming Soon: watch the Reason Rally online!

Hey folks; your humble Administrator here.  I’m currently working a couple of bugs out of the new video player but rest assured very soon you’ll be able to watch the contents of the DVDs here on our site for a small fee.  Stay tuned: more news soon!!

Limited Time Left for DVD Orders

We’re accepting DVD orders for a limited time now; they are ready to ship!  Friday noon is the deadline for buying DVDs of the 2012 Reason Rally so be sure to order them while you can!

UPDATE: While the official Reason Rally store is closing you can still order DVDs from our sponsors; please visit their sites for more information!

Update on the DVDs II

The Reason Rally DVDs have been finalized and are now in the duplication process.  They will ship out later this month.  We are sorry for the delay.

Update on the DVDs

There have been some delays in the production of the DVDs however we anticipate they will start shipping later this month.  We appreciate your patience!  Personally I can’t wait!

Update on Reason Rally Store

The shirts have been removed from the web site so we can catch up on orders.  All orders will be filled and we expect shipping to occur next week.  We’ll keep you updated as the situation changes.  Thanks for your patience and understanding and for helping us make this such an amazing and successful event!

[UPDATE April 5th, 11:00am] We expect the remaining t-shirt orders to ship next week.  The DVDs are currently in production and we’ll be sure to let you know as soon as they are ready!

Thank You!!

With a crowd estimated at ~20,000 people despite the intermittent rain and cool temperatures we’re extremely happy with the tremendous success that the Reason Rally was.  We could not have done it without you, without your support, without the word-of-mouth, the videos, the links, the donations, the purchasing of shirts, hoodies, VIP passes, and everything else you amazing and wonderful people have done to help us make this event such an amazing success.  Words fail me; I cannot express enough gratitude on behalf of us all.

We’re going to be gathering links to videos and pictures and posting as much of that as we can over the next few weeks as we gather all the material and footage together.  Please bear with us as we’re all exhausted and recovering from the event and the many related events.  It will take several weeks (at least) but we will have DVDs for sale.  Stay tuned.

We’re Here!

We’ve started!!  I’ll be updating this page throughout the day as my Internet connection allows.

I’m sitting in the crowd watching Shelley Segal sing!  There are a LOT of people here and the crowd continues to grow.  Such a happy and nice crowd!

Seeing some great signs in the crowd…  They’re showing some on the big screens.

I’m about to head back into the crowd for pics for the website.

A little bit of rain but not much…

Walked among our awesome crowd; went to see the 8 or 9 protesters holding signs.

It’s training but it is not dampening our enthusiasm!  Dave Silverman is rocking the mic with his inspirational speech!

There are SO MANY people here!  Such a friendly crowd!  They don’t mind me walking among them stepping through the lines to get shots (and it’s not obvious who I am or what I’m doing – I’m just “some guy” to them).

More pictures added!!  I’m doing my best to keep them coming for you guys.  I’m guessing we have around 20,000 people despite the rain but that’s just my personal guess, not an official number.  I have no expertise in this so take that with a grain of salt the size of your fist.  ;-) Official numbers are in and over 30k people showed up!
