The March is an opportunity to show that women’s rights are human rights and that women, their partners and their children are ready to advocate for policies that affirm the value of women in society.
The March begins at 10 a.m.Eastern Time and will kick off in front of the U.S. Capitol at Independence Avenue and Third Street, SW. The rally will disperse at the southern part of the Ellipse near the White House, at Constitution Avenue between 15th and 17th Streets, NW.
Individuals interested in participating in the 2017 Women’s March on Washington can sign up through Eventbrite. You will be directed to the general March registration page, but as the organizer I will know you signed up and will be able to communicate with you directly about social work’s presence at the March.
Also, for those of you for whom Washington, DC is too long of a trip, some chapters will be working on mobilizing for local events. Please contact your chapter to find out about these efforts.
Any other questions can be directed to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-336-8218.
