Welcome to Day 1!

Today is DAY 1 of the 2011 Student Freedom Ride!

Our students are all here and ready to depart. This morning our students will go through an orientation and then have activities in and around Washington DC. Throughout the day we’ll post essays, photo and video from the students as they reflect on Day 1.

Follow this blog by rider, leader or speaker, location, or by day, by clicking on any one of the options under the “Follow the Ride” menu to the right.

Stay tuned as our student riders finally GET ON THE BUS!
