EVENT PLANNING KIT
1. Find the Right Location
Streets are public property and malls are private property. So, when scouting for a location for your rally, look for a prominent retail wireless location on a public street with wide sidewalks, so you can assemble your group in front of the store without blocking traffic or impeding the flow of pedestrians. Corners are always good locations.
If you can find a podium for speakers, it will help focus attention where you want it, and provide a place for news crews to place microphones. If you expect to have more than 25 or 30 people at the rally, you may need some sort of amplification so that everyone can hear. Ask around to see if someone has a battery-powered amplifier and microphone. Megaphones can be effective for smaller groups.
2. Obtain a Permit
Your city, town or village may require a permit for you to hold a sidewalk rally. Check with your local police department or mayor's office. Permits may take a few weeks to process, so apply soon! You will need to obtain a permit for your rally if:
