security. Prepare for security similarly to how you would for airport security
- remove all objects and electronic devices from pockets, avoid heavy belt
buckles and jewelry and prepare bags and items to go through X-ray - to ensure
we move rally attendees through security swiftly.
Signs in the Statehouse are restricted to 2' x 2' and may not be
mounted on sticks.
- Don't forget to wear red.
- Plan ahead for parking. The parking lot off the north steps of the Statehouse, accessed off of Ohio St. is free. The secondary Statehouse parking lot, accessed off of W. New York St. will be available for $10/vehicle from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Check Downtown Indy's parking guide for additional help. We recommend trying the Sun and World of Wonders Circle Center mall garages for the most affordable options. Bus parking and additional parking options for cars are listed on the ISTA blog.

We're expecting educators and advocates from all over the state carpooling and arriving on buses. It's going to be an exciting day!
