The Mostly Virtual March For Life Will Still Cause Street Closures In D.C.


The annual March for Life is taking place virtually this year due to the pandemic and heightened security around the Capitol following the Jan. 6 insurrection. While organizers are telling participants to stay home for the event, they are still hosting a smaller rally and march in D.C. on Friday with a handful of anti-abortion speakers, performers, and elected officials.

The rally will begin at 12 p.m. ET and be streamed on the March for Life website, Facebook, and YouTube channel.

Though smaller than usual, the planned march from the National Mall to the Supreme Court building – marking the anniversary of the Supreme Court’s 1973 decision in Roe vs. Wade — is still going to create traffic delays and closures.

The Metropolitan Police Department said drivers should anticipate street closures in the following areas:

The National Mall
L’Enfant Plaza
John Marshall Park
Union Station
The U.S. Capitol grounds
