To mark the first anniversary of the Seattle Women’s march, the organizations currently planning separate marches on January 20 are collaborating to create one event in Seattle. The march will start at Cal Anderson Park at 10am and will include programs featuring speakers from a broad range of organizations and communities.
The march organizers support The Womxn Act on Seattle day of action to be hosted by Seattle Womxn Marching Forward on Sunday, January 21.
It’s time to make history again!
Grab your hats and join us for a day of resistance and collective empowerment as we stand together to celebrate feminism and prepare for the coming year of activism.
On January 21st 2017, approximately 673 sister marches took place around the world including gatherings on all seven continents. With over three million participants in cities from DC to Seattle, the Women’s March is believed to be the largest protest in US history. This truly historic event marked the rise of the Resistance that millions of us have joined to oppose 45 and the destructive policies of those that seek to marginalize women, people of color and our siblings in the LGBTQ community.
We hope you will join us as we stand united for women’s rights and an end to the policies of discrimination that are so much a part of Trump’s agenda. We have much work to do but there is growing optimism in our movement that we can drive Trump out of office and take back the House and Senate seats we need in 2018 to right the legislative wrongs done by Trump and his allies in Congress. The coming year is a critical time and it is vital that we build community and work together to achieve these key objectives.
Like last year, this will be an all-inclusive, peaceful and family-friendly event. Help us make sure it includes people from every segment of the region including the LGBTQ community, Muslims and people of color that have been targeted by Trump and his neo-fascist followers.
We’d like to get started on Facebook by sharing stories about last year’s march and photos that show how the march impacted you and your loved ones. We also want to encourage people to discuss the #MeToo movement and what we can do in the next year to more effectively support women who are the victims of sexual harassment and assault.
We will continue to post here about pre-march events and opportunities to volunteer with our organizers. So, please check back often and be sure to share this with your friends and help us make the 2018 march even bigger than last year!
