Organizing a Public Event

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Public events such as vigils, protests, rallies, or street theater events can help draw attention to the impacts of U.S. policy in Latin America. Vigils or other events in front of the offices of your members of Congress can be a useful tool for getting your message across before a crucial vote. See our issue pages for more information on critical dates when these efforts will be necessary, and make sure to have information to hand out at the event for passers-by. Remember that you may have to get a permit, sometimes far in advance, for a vigil or rally in a public space.
