The march, organized by borough residents Kate Triggiano and Boris Kofman, is scheduled to leave New Jersey Transit parking lot 2 at the Red Bank train station at noon sharp. Marchers will head north to Monmouth Street, east to Broad Street and then north to West Front Street, where they’ll turn west into Riverside Gardens Park for a rally.

A borough permit sets a two-hour limit for the march and gathering.

As of Thursday morning, some 500 people had indicated they would participate, Triggiano said.
