Women’s March On Colorado Jan. 20th, 9am

Women's March Denver, Jan 21, 2017 (306)

women's march 2018Why we are marching:

We believe that social justice, human rights, and equality for women and all marginalized people nationwide are shared American values. We firmly believe that there is still much work to do, and that real change will only happen when women are an active and respected part of the conversation. Until we have socioeconomic justice, and are active participants in a government that works for all of us, there is a reason to march.

We will gather beginning at 8:30 AM. in Civic Center Park. The pre-rally will begin at 9 AM at the Civic Center Park Amphitheater, followed by the March at 9:30 AM and rally at noon. The map is posted at www.marchoncolorado.org.

Last year’s March demonstrated the power of women’s voices, and many women were galvanized to run for public office as a result. We believe it is important to continue the momentum created in part by the Women’s March, and serve as a forum for women and allies to express their intention to create real and significant change in our society.

The Women’s March belongs to all of us.

To that end, we recognize that many groups have been working on women’s and social justice issues for decades. In our sincere effort to honor the women and communities engaged in this important work, we have created a March On steering committee. This steering committee is helping us shape the January 20th theme and speaker roster, in addition to helping channel the march momentum into impactful community efforts moving forward. The steering committee list will be posted on our website,www.marchoncolorado.org.
