Support Crowd: As we all know the committed folks who have been at the Capitol for over 13 days now will be asked to leave by 4:00 p.m. on Sunday. We want this to be a positive experience and would love to have a crowd of supporters at the Capitol to greet them and thank them when they walk out. We will be using the door on State Street which is symbolic –State Street is where our Rallies started. While people will be asked to leave-the Capitol- this fight is far from over- people will be back again on Monday and Tuesday. So please help us get people there to stand with these committed people who have called Capitol City their home these last two weeks. So let’s show our support and thank them for standing strong with us. Please plan to be at the State Street entrance of the Capitol outside by 3:30 p.m. Sunday. (
