Reason Rally, Washington DC

Being the nation’s capital and all, Washington DC is the place to go if you want to put together a rally. Today, just east of the Washington Monument there was a rally for reason called adequately enough, the Reason Rally:

The Reason Rally is a movement-wide event sponsored by the country’s major secular organizations. The intent is to unify, energize, and embolden secular people nationwide, while dispelling the negative opinions held by so much of American society… and having a damn good time doing it!

Unfortunately, the weather proved to be rather nasty, so I didn’t stay long, but I was able to take a few photos of the event.

The speakers I was able to see were Adam Savage from Mythbusters, a few people I haven’t really ever heard of, and Eddie Izzard. When it wasn’t raining, it was a pretty good time. I wish I could have been around for the whole day.
