Would any representative of frum Jews agree to speak?

I’m not sure what you mean by representative but I’m sure there are many frum Jews who would gladly accept the opportunity

So do I stay in my cozy bed rather than go?

Nah. I couldn't care less about the event speakers. It's about show of numbers (and hopefully קבלת עול מלכות שמים).
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

So there really doesn't seem to be a machlokes in halacha at all....the disagreement boils down to whether you think this hishtadlus can help save lives or not.

More about how serious the concerns are taken and weighing it against the benefits, while also taking a deeper look at the ostensible benefits in light of the concerns.

Rabbi Moshe Hauer would make for a great speaker, and would probably agree to speak. I guess the offer wasn't made.

would also be historically poignant as he got his start with the rallies for Soviet jews which is the last precedent for this rally not to mention sharansky being there..

A bona fide 'representative' for the frum crowd (as opposed to a frum individual) would exacerbate the התחברות issue

Note there is NO religious representation from reform or conservative either. That appears to be deliberate, and a smart move, imho.

My assumption is there will be tefillah and Torah from the frum singers.

As mentioned above, the frum organizations that are encouraging people to go are (for the most part) encouraging that on an individual basis without putting their organizational stamp on it, for all the reasons mentioned.

Chris Smith is technically representing Lakewood.....

Here's the official program. I think they're delusional that they can pack in so much in so little time, and there's no way this is running on schedule or finishing on time.

It's also clear that this is a political event, not a religious one, and I think those who are expecting Torah content and/or tefillah will be sorely disappointed. The least they could have done would be to include a couple communal perakim of Tehillim, though that's apparently not part of the Federation agenda. I wonder how the Moetzes will feel about promoting it.

It's also interesting to note that there's no appearance by Doug Emhoff, the Jewish husband of Kamala Harris who went to Cornell last week to give chizuk to the Jewish students.

-Tentative program schedule for March on Washington NBC news reports The "March for Israel" protest in Washington, D.C. tomorrow has been elevated to SEAR 1 threat level by the Department of Homeland Security - requiring “significant coordination among federal, state, and local authorities and warrants pre-deployment of federal assets.”

The people running it probably don't have any clue what tehillim is. Whoever expected that was delusional. Anyway, who is going for the program to begin with?

But,
A bona fide 'representative' for the frum crowd (as opposed to a frum individual) would exacerbate the התחברות issue

Thinking into it, you're 100% right! This may very well be the reason why "he" would refuse to speak, he doesn't belong in that lineup.
