  1. I was the media co-director for the March, not the quilt which was a separate organization. The Park Police told us that for every block of the Mall we filled up, that was 250,000 people. We filled up three blocks going back to the start of the quilt. So as many as 750,000. Our coverage was decent for the time, especially the Supreme Court demonstration. We did contact ALL of the mainstream press and there is no excuse for the major magazines to not have covered the event.
