We'd like to have about double the number of Marshals required on our permit from the James R. Thompson Center. They require us to have 44 Marshals for the number of people they estimate will fill the plaza. We'd like to have around 70-80.
Would YOU like to be a Marshal? Shoot me an email at DonGwinn@TheFiringLine.com and let me know. Marshals will be required to help attendees find their way, pass out literature, make sure aisles and doors are kept clear, keep people from carrying or posting signs inside the building, and smile a lot. Those who can stay after the rally ends will be asked to help us clean up and de-litter the place so it looks better after we're done than it did when we arrived.
Pay is one free hat for the first 72 volunteers, with the possibility of homemade chocolate-chip cookies.
