    I know many will not be able to attend the march, but if you would like to, please sign the petition before the March, so they can take it to our Congressmen. Also, on that day, we could make calls to our representatives, showing our support for the march and the goals of the march.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
