If you need housing for Friday or Saturday
Please email BaltimorePeoplesAssembly@gmail.com. The people of Baltimore will open their hearts and homes to those who need housing. Bring a sleeping bag or air mattress. There is also hostel space in downtown Baltimore at the HI Baltimore hostel,17 W. Mulberry St., Baltimore, MD 21201. You can call them at 410-578-8880 or go to baltimorehostel.org. This hostel is relatively close to the summit. You can take the free downtown Circulator bus to North Ave and walk several blocks.
Transportation to Baltimore
The BOLT BUS stops at Penn Station which is within walking distance (.9 miles) of the Assembly (or take the free Circulator bus or MTA bus to North Ave.). Please note that there are other inexpensive coach buses but they drop off passengers on the outskirts of Baltimore City in the county and transportation from these areas is sporadic and sparse. Our organizers will be busy doing transportation pickups in the city, and will not be able to accommodate pickups outside of Baltimore. The Amtrak train runs services from BWI airport to Penn Station.
If you drive, there is easy and accessible street parking. If you park at a meter, the costs are very cheap but be aware that meters are in effect on Saturdays. There is also non-metered parking.
Funds & Volunteers are needed.
Please consider helping us with the many costs of the Assembly, the cost of the hall, food, and literature. Please visit https://www.wepay.com/donations/national-people-s-power-assembly to make a much-needed donation.
