Hi folks! We will NOT be having an April chapter meeting at our normal meeting location. Instead of a chapter meeting, we will head to Pershing Square (Hill & 6th Streets) in downtown LA to take part in the MARCH FOR SCIENCE!
As an update, we have a meeting place set up at the Crowell Public Library in San Marino. Please see below for location information.
Why are we marching? Because we feel this will be a GREAT opportunity to create visibility about hearing loss, publicize our cause, show our support for government-supported research for hearing loss, and show our pride in how we use technology to improve our lives. Note: this is NOT a march against anything; all political points of view are welcome!
What You Need to Know
Saturday, Aprill 22nd
Note Regarding the Library
Upon considering the library to meet for the March, we discovered it had a looped room! So now we are strongly considering this library as a new meeting place for our monthly meetings. Pat worked tirelessly to find the hospital, and her efforts are so appreciated! What went unanticipated was the ease of access and the cost for parking. We will keep you all posted, but if you do come to the library for the March, you can peek at the room and give us your feedback. Please note the loop will not be working at this time but still important to check out the room!
8:30am for sign making, food, coffee, and general merriment.
At 9:45am we will be taking the bus downtown to Pershing Square / City Hall (Grand & 5th). The bus leaves from the library at 9:45am sharp, arriving at 10:28am. The March begins at 11:00am. We will provide some chairs for those who want to watch from the sidelines.
Other Travel Options
The Metro Red Line will take you directly to Pershing Square (the stop is on Hill Street between 4th and 5th). You can transfer to the Red Line from the Gold Line at Union Station.If you are coming from The Valley, there is a Rally Bus that picks up in Thousand Oaks.

Either of these can be taken. We can decide as a group when to come back.

**If you RSVP to the March by this Saturday, April 15th, our chapter will provide the fare with TAP cards. Please let us know or contact us via our Contact Us form.
Food, coffee, and arts and crafts to make signs will be provided. Come early and come hungry! Also, if you have a Walk4Hearing t-shirt, please wear it so we can look like a unified group! We will have a few to spare as well.
The idea of the March was put forth by our inspiring new president, Heather Lehr. This will be a GREAT opportunity to create visibility about hearing loss, publicize our cause, show our support for government-supported research for hearing loss, and show our pride in how we use technology to improve our lives. Note: this is NOT a march against anything; all political points of view are welcome! Heather will be there in spirit, so let’s make her proud and march on!
