The vigil will take place at the Bell Tower on the capitol grounds  (101 N 9th St, Richmond, VA 23219) from 2:00-3:00 pm and then head over to the Pocahontas building to advocate for good bills and against bad ones from 3:00-5:00 PM.

Bus From Northern Virginia:  You may decide you want to pack a lunch rather than go to a restaurant when you arrive in Richmond. (Many are closed for MLK Day).  It might also be a good idea to bring snacks for the bus ride home.
