WASHINGTON (CNS) — The annual March for Life, set for Jan. 22, will convene in a new location in the nation’s capital for the traditional midday rally.
Because of the ongoing refurbishment of the National Mall and strict new regulations that require temporary flooring to protect the grass, the rally has been moved from the West Front of the Capitol to the Washington Monument grounds.
“We were lucky to get that. It’s going to cost us $70,000, and it’s not something we budgeted for,” said Jeanne Monahan-Mancini, president of March for Life. “It’s the most economical wide-open space we could afford.”
