Good stuff (thanks to Kenny Boddye for forwarding this to me); let’s all let Trump know we are still here and resisting his disgraceful administration, one year after the Inauguration Day from Hell (and also the amazing Women’s March, which I was proud to participate in!).
Washington, D.C.: On January 20, 2018, women and allies will once again take to the streets of the nation’s capitol to make a powerful statement to the current administration and the rest of the world. In a follow-up to the largest demonstration in U.S. history, people from across the country will meet at the Reflecting Pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial at 11am. March Forward Virginia (formerly the Women’s March on Washington-Virginia Chapter) will host a rally showcasing several speakers (TBD) followed by a march on the White House.
March To The Polls D.C., the Anniversary to the 2017 Women’s March, exists to advance peaceful and positive progress in communities across the country, with the goal of ensuring all women and their allies persist in civic and political roles moving into 2018. 2017 featured an historic number of women engaging in the political process – including running for office – and it is vital that women and their allies continue to take an active role in 2018 elections.
Virginians have shown their unwavering dedication to achieving progress, giving everyone the ability to make change happen. The unifying theme of the movement is: When we vote, we win. When we stay engaged, we win. When we support each other, we win!
March To The Polls D.C. is part of the larger #WeekendOfWomen, with sister marches being planned in multiple cities across the country. From the streets of Chicago, to Las Vegas, to Columbus, and Memphis, all across this nation women and allies will once again mobilize to stand together in solidarity and action!
