The buses will drop off at 1st and Main Street. (See photo to the left) and pick up in the loading zone on 5th Street between Olive and Hill Streets.

AFTER THE MARCH
After the march, join us for dinner at 5:00 pm at Mercado La Paloma (3655 S. Grand Avenue Los Angeles, CA 90007), home to 14 family-owned restaurants. We’re encouraging people to take the Red and Expo lines to the Mercado, or catch public buses from Pershing Square. Click here for directions.
We will also be hosting a Non-Violent Direct Action Training after the march from 5:30–7:30 pm for an upcoming action. It will take place at the Mercado in room #280 on the second floor.
This former sweatshop is now a community and cultural space led by Esperanza Community Housing Corporation, one of the main groups of the STAND-LA coalition and a main coordinator of this action.
