WHERE: MindFreedom parade entry gathers on High Street, near 10th Street intersection. Look for signs pointing you to Entry # 85. We will be on the west side of High Street.


For fun we'll have the Big Giant Pill chasing us, and then we'll chase it back! We will all march behind signs with the themes you see on the top of this page. Make history! Join us!
