Details for 912 Events
Dear Fellow Patriots,
The overwhelming outpouring of support from Tea Party Patriots is truly astounding! You guys are the most incredible Americans! Thank you! Thank you!
>From the emails and snail mails we have received over the last few weeks, we know many of you will join us in DC. Others will host local events to demonstrate with us in their home towns. Others have work and family obligations and will be cheering us on from those obligations. No matter where you are on September 12, whether you are in DC, at a local event, or watching the news coverage of the day, we will be united as Americans and standing shoulder to shoulder with other Patriots in presence and in spirit.
We will remind America of the incredible gift our Founding Fathers gave to us. As a united voice, we will stand up for the United States Constitution. We will be one voice demanding Congress restores fiscal responsibility to our national budget. We will remind Congress, the President, and our fellow citizens what limited government and free markets can do.
Be sure to check out the opportunities listed below to make your voice heard on September 12.
What's next? Will Tea Party Patriots actually have more weekly to do list emails? Yes. You guys have not needed our guidance over the August recess. You have made your voices heard at town halls across this country and have received tremendous news coverage in doing so. Look for those emails to start again this week, when Congress resumes.

We will be in touch with you this week about when and where to volunteer.
The Tea Party Patriots Hub in DC will be the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill: 400 New Jersey Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C., USA 20001. In addition to having our Sign Making Event at the Hyatt Regency, there will be Tea Party Patriots t-shirts and other gear available, a welcome desk on September 11, and a video hot spot where you can record your voice to tell why you are in DC. The Hyatt has a huge bar area and a nice restaurant if you would like a place to rest from the other planned activities. It is within walking distance of both Union Station and the Capitol.
The Tea Party Patriots Sign Making Event from 8 am - 11 pm on Friday, September 11 will be at the Hyatt Regency on Capitol Hill (400 New Jersey Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C., USA 20001) This will be the best place to go to meet and greet other Tea Party Patriots and to make your signs. While we will have supplies, it would be helpful if you bring your Sharpies and Poster Markers. Come stop by for an hour or stay the day. We'd love to meet you in person.
Where do we meet on September 12? If you are physically able to walk in the March, we would like you to begin gathering at Freedom Plaza at 9:00 am. We will march from Freedom Plaza to the West Lawn of the Capitol. At Freedom Plaza (1350 Pennsylvania Ave NW, Washington, DC 20004, Metro Center Red, Blue and Orange lines; Federal Triangle Blue and Orange lines), we will line up by state according to this list. There will be speakers at Freedom Plaza, many of whom are Tea Party Patriots Local Coordinators, prior to marching. The March ends and the Rally will officially begin at 1:00 at the West Lawn of the Capitol. To accommodate as many speaker and musician requests as possible, there will also be speakers on the West Lawn before the official start time at 1:00 but the exact start time of these speakers and entertainers has not been determined. It will be dependent on how quickly the staging and audio equipment will be setup.

Planning to visit your Congressman and Senators while in DC? Be sure to call their offices to schedule a time to visit. It will probably be best to visit in groups of 5 - 12 or so people. If you know of others from your area going, get a group together and visit the office. If the Congressman or Senators are not available, you might ask to visit with the Chief of Staff or other staff member.
Here's some other miscellaneous information including map of Capitol Hill, information about Freedom Plaza, Union Station, Capitol Hill Restaurants, overall map of DC, Washington Post Visitor Guide to DC, and Destination DC Visitor Information.
Continue to keep up the incredible work you do to further our core values: fiscal responsibility, constitutionally limited government, and free markets. You are the heart and soul of this movement. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help you!
