There are some good colorful ones, but it would've been nice to have more. i think people feel more empowered --and are indeed more powerful-- when they display a visual message with them at an event like this. it's also great to see how individual creativity expresses itself. perhaps a sign-making party on-site before the next big event would help make this happen? bring the kids by a little early, make some signs, meet some folks, etc. and actually, with all the speakers before the march at this event, that would've been plenty of time to make more, too. i'm sure there's gotta be folks in town who'd donate markers, paint, boards, etc. (recycled cardboard from dumpsters is best, from the viewpoint of sustainable living, imho.) or perhaps if there's any money left over after paying for the permits (argh) it could be used for that. just a thought! :)
