** For symbolic reasons, it’s important to have the Candlelight Vigil with Capitol Hill in the background. However, for safety reasons, we cannot have this activity take place at night. Therefore, we’ve hired a professional photographer who will use special filters to ensure that the pictures turn out just right – i.e., not too light given the time of day. Other group photos will also take place with Capitol Hill in the background. If time, we may even try to organize the first EndoMarch-member yellow ribbon formation.

On the registration form, where they ask the reason for your visit, select “Other” and enter the following description:

“I would like to raise awareness about Endometriosis and hold a banner to that effect coincident with Worldwide EndoMarch 2016. Endometriosis affects 1 in 10 women.”

The EndoMarch team will be providing a banner and we plan to arrive at 6:15 a.m. to secure a desirable location.
