Last year we scraped things together at almost the last minute and still managed to get 500 people in the streets.  We had thousands in Pioneer Square for the Rally afterwards and spent the day educating & celebrating with no arrests.  This year we're building on the momentum and need your support. 

 About the Million Marijuana Marches

The NYC-MMM event is an event that has been going on for somewhere around 25+ years and has years of tradition of which many are unaware. It started as the Yippie! organized "May Day 5th Avenue Pot Parade" and Dana has been the MC since its inception (we believe). The CRRH web site has a video you can watch which documents some of this history loosely. Howard Lotsof and other Yippie! activists produced this in 1977 and it is called "Smoke-In: The Movement to Legalize Marijuana". It is at: <http://www.crrh.org/hemptv/docs_yippie.html>.

In 1996, the event became known as the Million Marijuana March. This appears to have been an attempt to capitalize on some potential name recognition from the Nation of Islam's Million Man March.  Once again, perhaps we have something to learn from other rights movements.  Even though the event still occurs on the first Saturday in May, it has now established tradition of its own, spreading beyond NYC.

The emphasis of this years events should the turning from that street party into a productive political venue that the NAACP and the ACLU would be proud to co-sponsor. We folks in Portland have done this successfully, we beleive.  Let's honor our counter-cultural elements, history, heroes and activists, but at the same time be aware that we need to better coordinate our efforts for the maximum politically-positive media spin and potential resulting benefits for our on-going political efforts.

 Portlands Million Marijuana March

Success can be a two edged sword. For those working to change the laws governing cannabis, there is hope. The passage of medical marijuana and the defeat of an attempt to recriminalize its possession for personal use were very heartening; not just for Oregon but for the nation. The wall of prohibition, thrown up by ignorance and vested interests, is crumbling. There is a light at the end of the tunnel. It's crucial, however, not to forget we're still in the tunnel. In the flush of success, the work remains. We must celebrate by considering our next step.

We have come this far because our cause is right. As with all laws that are unreasonable and unjust, the prohibition of cannabis has shown itself also to be impractical and costly. In economic terms, outlawing its commercial cultivation is not the act of a rational government; used to produce paper, hemp fiber could play a major role in preserving our nations forests. Outlawing the personal use of marijuana has generated an unacceptable cost in terms of human lives. The number of new prison beds outpaces the number of new schools. Change, when it comes, will not be a product of today's successes, but of tomorrows.

There is a time in all processes where energy reaches critical mass; the point at which change in a certain direction is not just probable but inevitable. Our next step is to generate this critical mass. There is no political truth greater than this; citizens get the society, and the laws, they deserve. If we want freedom of choice, we must first choose not to be silent. If we believe the prohibitions against cannabis have neither logic nor merit and, instead of making a better society, are turning good citizens into criminals, we need to live our convictions. We need to stand, speak out.

The next step is we, and our power as human beings to change society one heart and one mind at a time. It will be a very good millennium.

Our mission: to broadcast Information and Educate people about the cost of cannabis prohibition and the benefits of ending it. Further, we work to Empower the people to effect this change. To give them tools and the means to use them. To give them opportunities to express themselves to their detractors, to uninformed observers and to their supporters. Marches and Rallies are a good way to do this.

Pdx NORML presents
the Million Marijuana March 2001

Scheduled for the first Saturday in May, the one-day event will feature information booths, national speakers, and live music. It's success or failure will depend on it's being more than a mere gathering of like minds. Ours are not the minds we need to be concerned with. Its success depends on our ability, each and every one of us, to become a teacher.

The Million Marijuana Marches, happening on May 5th, 2001 this year, is a global celebration of the benefits of cannabis. A peaceful party to celebrate our gains and to re-energize for the next steps. The main purpose is to raise awareness about the issues, to inform and educate thru the publicity involved. Secondly, we want to register every person there and further empower them by providing whatever is needed to getting them to the voting booth at the right time. Also we want a good show, a nice time for every one - entertaining as well as informative. And, at the same time, we can also raise a little money and fund some projects for the cause - like sponsoring OMMA patients who can't afford a fee or a Hemp Initiative. In this we will have to spend some money to make some.

Strategy issues:

(1) Family Affair
(2) accentuate the positives, 'information stations' at all four corners
(3) communications, volunteer training
(4) know our rights and options - can squads of cops just stroll on thru with frothing dobermans and loiter at leisure? (not that we object, heck give them the mike!)

Mission objectives & goals:

(1) the March (and thru plublicity about & during the March raise awareness and followers)
(2) Registering Voters (thru the Rally) and
(3) empowering (tools & tool building 'kits') them thru Literature and Contact info. Thru that we
(4) sign up members and generally gain support & We do this for the casue in general and to get the most resources to best insure we
(5) fundrai$e. ('cheap, good, on time' paradigm)
(!) and, at the same time, build alliances and an overall activist community.

After the public mandate, via measure 67, allowing for the use of Medical Marijuana in Oregon we at PDX NORML were inundated with requests for information and referrals. We have been assisting as many people as possible, yet we see the needs only increasing.

We are helping in the formation of a coalition of organizations in order to better address our community needs. We need a dedicated space in which to do our work. Our mission is to educate the community about marijuana and its surrounding issues, inform people about OMMA, assist them through the process and support them socially through the often isolating effects of a debilitating condition.

The Portland Million Marijuana March 2001 is a global event drawing attention to the medical, industrial, and environmental benefits of cannabis while generating revenue as well as interest. Proceeds from the March will be allocated as follows; 40% to PDX NORML to continue its work of cannabis law reform and 60% to the start up costs of the Oregon Medical Marijuana Coalition Resource Center.

Without information, there can be no informed decisions, the truth, presented without self-righteous zeal, will not only set us free but also bring us together. Some of the organizations that will be invited to participate;(for a complete list go to X)

MAMA - Mothers Against Misuse & Abuse, Voter Power, Medi-juana, Contigo-Comingo, Shade Tree Development, the Eugene Gro-Op, Patients Out of Time, the Stormy Ray Foundation, Oregon Medical Marijuana Network, American Civil Liberties Union, FEAR / Forfeiture Endangers American Rights, November Coalition, Oregonians for Medical Rights, Portland Copwatch

We hope this is the beginning of a national cannabis coalition. This year can be a very good one. It will be what we all have made of it.

Thank you in advance for your consideration and your support towards our common goal, to inform and to assist in the change of the current laws and perceptions of marijuana and its place in our society.

Fundraising

Last year we Operated at Plan Zero (see Financial Report, above), scraped things together at the last minute and still managed to get 500 people in the streets.  We had thousands in Pioneer Square for the Rally afterwards and spent the day educating & celebrating with no arrests.  This year we're building on the momentum and need your support.  We need funds up front this year to reserve the Square and for staging, booths and other equipment.  We'll be beating the bushes for sponsor support, but it won't cover it all & we need your help now.  Send $100, $50, $25 whatever!  We can ...

* Get Biz support.  If we have vendors (sales or soliciting of money of any kind) we are into Plan 1 (see Financial Report and must raise $3000.  We have had some interest by Biz but no one has financially committed yet, so we can't reserve or plan on this option being available.  A Biz could support us even tho they can't/won't have a booth there.  Businesses who make a contribution get their logo on our web site dedicated to the March and on literature we hand out the day of.  Contact Us for details.

* Get 'grant' funding.  Some sugar daddy (or mama), local or otherwise, who will sponsor or loan us for the event. We are working on publishing a complete plan covering not only the March & Rally, but the Promo leading up to it.  We have prepared a formal document and submitted to the highest (pun intended) levels we can.  We are seeking funding from national sources such as NORML and the Lindesmith Center as well as local contributors.

* Collect a dollar from every cannabis user & sympathizer.  C'mon, give a Buck!  We have made some gains in the cannabis law reform movement and there's even some talk of going on the offensive.  But we've much to do.  The MMM is an important step.  It has the promise to be the reform event of the year in Oregon and second only to the Seattle Hempfest in the northwest.  Imagine! Just $5 or even a Buck from every cannabis user and sympathizer, what we could do.  Every donation, no matter how small, gets a newsletter up to the next event.

* Place CANs & such around town. 

CANs for collecting are available, contact us. They look ok and are functional, I dropped some off at The Third Eye and Smokin' Glass on Hawthorne, along with some Flyers. Or make your own jar/can. Just let us know where they are. I propose to leave in the can a piece of paper with the time, date, amount, who (my signature) when I pick up from them. Places I plan to hit next: every Biz in Pot-land.

Please, help make it happen.  Be there, in any case.  Nothing like it.
 

NOTE! Fundraising - we CAN solicit donations during the march, even with Plan Zero.

T-Shirts. T-Shirts will retail at $__ each. The cost to print them will be $__. The screen printer will be responsible for all aspects of the retail operation. We will receive $__ per shirt.

 March & Rally PLANz

Ok, ready or not, here it comes - MMM 2001; Million Marijuana March 2001 - also to be known as the New Millennium Marijuana March and other acronyms (my personal favorite is still Jday!). The Plan, so far:

MMM 2001 - PORTLANDs Million Marijuana March 2001.  Sat., May 5th, 2001
Assemble at Pioneer Square at 10am, (load in begins at 7am)
 - March at High Noon, Rally at 2pm, music & speakers til 7pm
(close up and out by 9pm)  Volunteers needed!

March route so far out of Pioneer Square (East? side) left on to Broadway. Down to Salmon and turn left. Left on 4th and down to Stark. Right on Stark to Front/Naito Street. Left on Naito/Front and down to Ash Street. Left on Ash. Right on 2nd and down to Burnside. Left on Burnside and down to Broadway where we turn left. Down Broadway and back into Pioneer Square.

Think of ALL the things you want to have happen before, during and after the event and then figure out how many different groups/committees are needed to pull it off.

Your planning committee begets your smaller committees. (publicity, entertainment, etc.) And I would suggest, based on experience, that you have co-chairs for each committee, due to the fact that a buddy system works better and all bases are covered should the main person have to bail. It's easier sharing the load than doing all the work by yourself. We all know that good intentions don't always work out and that unexpected situations do arise.

The MARCH itself 

[_] MARCH. March notes; (1) you must have a route, start and end. (P/Sqr, in our case). (2) you must go in the direction that traffic normally goes. (3) should keep this within 1 mile total distance which is 20 blocks. The parade lady (Cynthia Warren) sez yes on Naito Parkway. We've filed the route and paid the $63 (in '00) permit fee. Grand Marshall<?>

MARCH Route is: out of Pioneer Square (East? side) left on to Broadway. Down to Salmon and turn left. Left on 4th and down to Stark. Right on Stark to Front/Naito Street. Left on Naito/Front and down to Ash Street. Left on Ash. Right on 2nd and down to Burnside. Left on Burnside and down to Broadway where we turn left on to Broadway. Down Broadway to Pioneer Square.

As far as we know we are expecting the march to last around an hour and a half. Any longer and we might have problems with patients. Remember - We are marching to tell people the truth about the wonderful plant that marijuana is.

The march is scheduled to start at High Noon. As soon as the march leaves the square, the band will start to set up and be ready to play by the time everyone gets back.

| the March & Rally overall | the MARCH itself | the RALLY iteself | the PLAN (status) |

The RALLY itself 

Saturday, May 5, 2001. Set-up starts at 7AM, groups start to assemble at 10AM (pre-March Rally) and we begin marching promptly (!) at High Noon. Around the City and back up Broadway to Pioneer Square where the rally will begin with speakers, musicians (?), etc. A prayer of unity will be observed (?) circle the drummers at 4:20. Then finish with speakers and music. Will end (and start take down) at 7PM. Do the booths/tables/clean up and we should be out of there by 7PM at the latest.

Possibly, a nighttime benefit at some local club for bands to play and folks to hang out before they head out of town. NOTE! Fundraising issue - can NOT solicit donations, same as running biz there, and costs $1000 extra.(Plan Zero)

[_] RALLY. Got the OKAY <?> from Pioneer Square to set up a 25-foot trailer instead of a stage just where we pictured it <?>. The awning will serve as protection for the band as well as any speakers and we won't have to worry about getting folks in chairs up a ramp. Also, the inside can be used as an office/security place and the outside walls can be decorated with useful information... Maybe even do a hands-on, let the public decorate it with names/signs/whatever....

[_] INSURANCE for Rally and March. We need insurance - we are checking with a local provider (Gale Creek Ins.) and can get a 1 day policy for about $200. It was suggested we might get a rider off of a policy that National or Regional NORML might have. We called, and they get 1 day policies too. Don't do enuff marching to justify it. Maybe we can change that.

We were going to pay $195 for a one day policy from Gale ? Ins. It is a one policy to cover people at rally - NOTE! This means attendees; people at rally, people on stage, on street (march?) - BUT will NOT cover participants; booths and tables (+?)

We decided to buy the $165 insurance policy for 1-500 attendees. Figured we'd be lucky to get that many and why pay for 501-1500 if we didn't have to... Again, anyone who decides to participate with a table or booth has to contribute SOMETHING for expenses.... and they have to get their own insurance. Gale's Creek offers 1 day premiums for $35. Just in case your booth falls on someone's head.... (have seen it happen....)

Since the event had to have insurance to cover the crowd (and might have to again next year) you'll want to find out whether there needs to be coverage for ALL of the vendor's booths collectively or whether each individual booth needs its own insurance (I think it was around $35 per). Depending on the cost of the insurance premium, you may want to lower the booth fees so people can afford both or purchase a group coverage and put funds into that.

Media

Media; getting our message out through our media (newsletters, posters, flyers, web) as well as our interaction with the press (newspapers, radio, TV). 

[_] PUBLICITY. Any and all broadcast about his event is good. Call radio stations, talk shows, TV stations, newspapers. Send Faxes, Emails and call any people you may know in the media. Please take notes!
Promotion includes press releases, newsletters with progress reports, meetings, and ads - flyers, handbills, newspaper, radio & even, maybe, TV.  MEDIA. (see Promotion/Press Relations Coordinator)  Karla has called Patti Wentz and few others. Madeline has also called Patti, Reed Coleman and a few others. We need to find out the results and follow up. I or someone will contact John Malaer and see if he can get in touch with Matt Palmquist of the Oregonian. I don't know how the other avenues discussed (KGW community, calls to radio/TV stations) have panned out.

It's ok to double cover on this. Any one of us can call and talk about this, just let us all know who you contacted, the channel (phone, email) and the result (yea, call em/nay, not for us).

As well as the usual T-shirts, hats, stickers, magnets.  Publishing the plan helps other cities by giving them instruction and encouragement.  And then we get the true benefits of the activity throughout the northwest - voter registration, literature out and members signed up, medical user networks and hemp-focused coalitions.

Thanks! Pdx NORML

Publicity, publicity, publicity Lets make a list and check it twice. Put CANs and FLYERS in every Head Shop, Record Store, Herbarium, etc. Broadcast where you put them so we all know.

media notes; generating P/R
FAX.  It would be possible to blanket the area, state even with Fax campaign driven off pc, using OUTLOOK or some tool. Alternative is to use somebodys fax machine and feed one at a time. Last alternative would be to go to service (kinkos) and have it done, but wouldn't do for this volume. Need to do something on this.  
PHONE.   This would be mostly the MEDIA contacts, but would include Phone Banks too.  
WEB Go  to sites for Radio/TV/Newspapers and drop standard message into their mail boxes.  Go to friendly sites (Hemp Net in WA St., the main page in NY, etc) and make sure they are up to date for us.  List all Ours and Others

ART 

ART. We have official design/logo and text. We want a 'library' with all the graphics we have, one with just a cross, one with just leaf & cross, just leaf and caduceus (snake & wings), etc. So you all can mix 'n match for whatever purposes. Need some slogans.

We want to have a banner party(s), prepare stuff for the march. We need a place. It was suggested and I will check, about using the Smokin' Glass store area/space. We need to gather supplies - we'll look into some poster board, markers, paint, brushes. Would like some styrofoam board that can be used.

Need your guys feedback on this. Would prefer a place that is wheelchair accessable.

[_] ART. art designs.  Some designs representing Medical, Hemp (Industrial) and DeCrim (free the POdWs!) have been proposed. Try to get 'end rolls' of paper we can use for banners & such. Get artists to draw designs and have crews paint them in. The thing is to get it out as fast as possible.

Be creative and make your own signs. Every little bit counts and this is what kills every event - the lack of publicity - every time.

FLYERS we a local design. We are passing them out with the CANs. I encourage any and all p/r, so I don't care about who does it or what the design so much as getting the word out. We'll be setting up a gallery with all the grafixs so people can make their own designs for flyers, parade stuff, or whatever.

So make flyers and share your stuff. Don't be miffed if people try something else. The important thing is to get the word out.  We have got to post any info where ever possible. Any board, college or supermarket whatever, that can take one of these should have one.
