On October 16, 1994, a rally in support of school choice was held at Liberty State Park in Jersey City, New Jersey, "intended to demonstrate broad citizen support nationally for choice in education and also to serve as a 'kick-off' event for the Jersey City 'Children First' Education Act," The Blum's Center's Educational Freedom Report announced August 26, 1994.

Save Our Schoolchildren sponsored the rally, hoping "to attract a great number of school choice supporters from across the country," the Blum Center wrote. "Many prominent advocates of educational choice" were invited to speak at rally, including Lamar Alexander, William J. Bennett, former President George H.W. Bush, U.S. Senators Bill Bradley and Bob Dole, Wisconsin State Representative Annette Polly Williams, New Jersey Governor Christine Todd Whitman and Jersey City Mayor Bret Schundler.
