I'm thinking of doing the Kid Bloc. None of my city friends have kids and will definitely want to be in their own respective sections, so that leaves just me and my son marching through the masses. It would be great if we could meet up with some other families...is anyone else going and interested in possibly meeting up?

Oh sure sorry, I'm really not connected at all but have been getting the info from seemingly everywhere, so I just assumed if I knew then everybody else on the PPK would!

Anyway, http://peoplesclimate.org/families/

That has all the details for families. I tried to post the flyer but it is too big. So here is the print info on that page:
Logistical Update:

Quote:
The People’s Climate March is on Sunday, September 21st

Parents, Kids, Families, and Students block. – meet up at 66th and Central Park West, and north on that block. You will not be able to enter every side street, but you will be able to enter on 66th street.

People should arrive around 10 am.

Kids– want to save the world? Dress like superheroes and animals!

Parents– make signs with your kids! They can make a sign about something they love, something they don’t want to lose to climate change, or anything else related!

Since there will be a decent amount of wait time before we start marching, please bring activities for your kids like bubbles, chalk, hula hoops, sign-making materials, etc.

More logistical tips available at: http://www.peoplesclimate.org/logistics

I will be there! I will either be marching with my statewide group or the quakers!

Well, we didn't make it - I chickened out on taking my 3 year old through big crowds. Seeing these pics I think I made the right decision BUT wow I'm bummed! My friends who were there say it was awesome!!!

Yeah, we made the same decision not to do it with a toddler, just too much. Every organization I have even a tangential relationship with sent a cohort, so I don't feel too bad.
