Umbrella for Women's March

Does anyone know of a source for an umbrella with a progressive slogan or image on it? I planned to carry a sign in the Women's March on Saturday but the forecast is for rain. It would need to get shipped to California by end of day this Friday. Thanks!

If you can't find one with a slogan, I just checked Amazon and they have tons of rainbow umbrellas with prime shipping.

If they're not letting us carry sticks for our signs or non-transparent backpacks i HIGHLY doubt that you'll be allowed to march with an umbrella. Especially given their use in the past by self-styled "anarchist" groups at protests.

Double check, but I am pretty sure umbrellas are not allowed at the march.

Most recent reports saying the weather is looking good for Saturday in DC. Rain is going to be on Friday.

That hadn't occurred to me but genmonster and Mchelly are probably right. Any leads on a rain poncho with a similar slogan or image then?

Alternative: could you possibly get the sign laminated instead, and wear a raincoat rather than carry an umbrella? I'd call your local FedEx Office and see how large a sign they can laminate.

Current predictions are for mid-fifties and overcast on Saturday.

Get a raincoat and decorate the back of it.

You can slogan a poncho or raincoat with one of those giant fat poster sharpies. I just Primed a pack of ponchos since the LA weather on Saturday seems iffy. (I can't tell if you're going to the LA march or flying to DC. Right now I have not heard that umbrellas are not allowed at the LA march but carrying a big eye-poking device in a large crowd, where your eye-poker will drip on everyone else too, is kind of uncool.)
