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


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.


    * Anything you think you'll need (toiletries, etc.)
    * a sleeping bag OR bed linen
    * a pillow
    * a towel
    * shower shoes
    * a flashlight
    * EARPLUGS and an EYESHADE if you are a light sleeper.

NOTE: Blankets will be available, and sometimes there are pillows available. Last year they also had sheets. You just never know.


    * Camera
    * Musical instruments
