Only 10 days left to reserve most seats.  Please tweet twitter facebook email, go viral.

There are hundreds of buses lined up, especially within 12 hours of DC.  You just have to ferret them out a bit.  I helped with info below.

First, I would check with the NAACP office in your area. I think this is your best bet.  You can find an office here.

You just have to put in some effort. Bus information below.

You can even put together your own bus, as long as you follow rules below:

If you know of any buses, please share the information here, too.  Thanks.

For information about the 10.2.10 One Nation Working Together March, and to sign up to join so they can see how many are interested and were we are located see below:
One Nattion

This is mushrooming into a HUGE event.  I am still trying to get all the buses listed by State/Zip code via ONWT.  Until then, this is the best I have been able to assemble to date.

HAVE YOUR CONSIDERED putting together a bus?  You can.  If you do, you will need to register the bus with One Nation Working Together, who has acquired the RFK Stadium to park the buses.  Go to this link to register your bus for the 10.2.10 March

BUSES ARE PROVIDED BY THE FOLLOWING ORGANIZATIONS, some just for their members, some for members and their friends, and some are open.  You will have to check availability and/or find a friend who is a member of one of the unions.

Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

NAACP

Again, this might be the best call you can make to find a bus.  There are 2,200 NAACP offices across the country.  Go to this Link and enter you zip code to find the nearest NAACP office near you.  Contact them (leave a message if you need to).  NAACP offices are involved in this March; however, not all offices will be offering buses but they may know of one.

Check with this group:

I found this while searching for buses.  I believe it is the Progressive Democrats of America posting this.  However, there doesn't seem to be a contact number or form to fill out.  I have emailed them.  However, as time is of the essence for your planning I have included it for you.

To Sign up To Ride One of the Buses:

Be sure to fill out form completely, include name, phone number and email, and any other means we can contact you, in case there is a change of bus schedule or location.
At this point there is no charge to ride any of the buses in NJ.  Go to this  Link and see if you can find a PDA group in your area.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:
Are you sure you want to remove this diary from your hotlist?
Are you sure you want to remove your recommendation? You can only recommend a diary once, so you will not be able to re-recommend it afterwards.
Rescue this diary, and add a note:
Are you sure you want to remove this diary from Rescue?
