How can I protect my purchase? Do I need insurance?

Yes, we strongly recommend that you buy trip insurance. There is no specific insurance that we recommend, but we do encourage purchasing insurance that would cover your expense due to illness or other personal reasons for canceling your attendance.

 

What happens if I need to cancel? Can I get a refund?

Refunds are available for cancellations made on or before August 15, 2022. After that, refunds will only be available in the case of extenuating circumstances. Please note that there is a $50 administrative fee that WRJ will keep to process the refund.

 

What are the COVID-19/health protocols?

You must be fully vaccinated and boosted, according to CDC guidelines, to attend the WRJ Civil Rights Journey. We will ask for your proof of vaccination when you register. We are also continuously monitoring safety protocols, which are subject to change closer to the journey's start date. All attendees must agree to and sign WRJ's Covenant of Care, which will be sent to registrants before departure. The current version is shared here and may be updated later.

 

Is the food kosher?

The meals during the journey will not be kosher, but we will do our best to offer kosher-style options throughout and accommodate additional dietary needs.

 

Should I go even if I don't know anyone else who is going?

Yes! We will have a private Yammer (social networking site) group and a WhatsApp group for journey attendees to connect. You can use these groups to find a potential roommate for the trip, "meet" others beforehand, and stay in touch afterward.

 

Can I attend even if I have physical limitations?

Yes! The bus is ADA accessible (kneeling bus), and all the museums are accessible as well. Many of them have wheelchairs that can be used. We can request ADA-accessible hotel rooms for those who need them. Please reach out to wrjregistrar@wrj.org to communicate about your specific accessibility needs to make sure we can best accommodate you!
