WHAT TO BRING


(also see the fasting tips, what to expect at the vigil, and the travel options/directions pages.)

We STRONGLY suggest you bring the following items with you to the Fast and Vigil:

    * Light clothes. The weather will be sunny, hot and humid. Thunderstorms are common at this time of year - we almost always have at least one very strong downpour. At night, the weather will be dark, with wildly spreading light in the morning. On occasion, the all-night vigil has been damp and chilly.
    * Comfortable shoes - two pairs if possible, in case one pair gets wet.
    * Sunscreen AND sunglasses AND hat.
    * Rain gear
    * Water bottle
    * Low denomination bills for Metro fare cards (if you plan to use public transportation)
    * Money for AbolitionWear, and YES, there will be an official Fast & Vigil t-shirt!
    * Your list of the local media where you live

IF YOU ARE STAYING WITH US AT CCNV....

Remember, if you plan to stay at CCNV, you may arrive there any time after 1pm on June 28. Check-out time is no later than 11am on July 3.

BRING....

    * a sleeping bag OR bed linen
    * a pillow
    * a towel
