The New York Avenue Presbyterian Church is excited to announce that we will host groups for the Women’s March on Friday, January 20 and Saturday, January 21!
Welcome to the Women’s March on Washington page! We have prepared an information packet for those who are interested in sheltering at the church the night of January 20th and 21st. In the pack you will find more details about what to expect that weekend and registration forms, required for sheltering. Please read the packet in full.
Here is the most important information
- We will be open for overnight guests for those participating in the Women’s March on Washington on January 20 starting at 8:00 am. The church will remain open for Women’s March visitors through Sunday January 22 at 2 pm.
- We will close the doors on January 20 and 21 at 11 pm. We expect that all overnight guests will be in the building by 11 pm.
- We are honored to host overnight guests for the Women’s March on Washington. However, we do not normally host overnight guests. Lodgings are very basic. (Sleeping on the floor; no showers.) The New York Avenue Presbyterian Church hosts will be entirely led by a volunteer effort. We will NOT have security personnel. We thank you for your patience and cooperation.

Please note that to confirm that you have a place to stay with us, we require you to fill out all of the forms in the packet and pay a non-refundable registration fee. Please read this information in the packet very carefully.
If you do not plan on spending the night, but will be visiting NYAPC during hospitality hours, the packet still contains important information for you to note before you arrive.

If you are coming with a large group for warming and hospitality and don’t require overnight accommodations, please send an email to email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
