For the one year anniversary of the Women’s March, women and allies will come together at the Centennial Plaza at UTEP to celebrate and march down Oregon to San Jacinto Plaza.
The march and celebration, set for January 21st, 2018 at 2:00 p.m., is for participants to “share a collective agenda representing a broad and diverse group of unity interests.”
Via a news release, official said, “This year, the Women’s March is committed to turning out the vote and hopes to use the power of the upcoming march, along with the work being done by partner organizations, to bring attention to the urgency of preparing for the November midterm elections. The March will encourage participants to use their vote to help build a government that reflects their ideals, and will provide the tools to do so by having voter registration available on-site.”
Ahead of the march, organizers are hosting a Poster Making Party & Poetry Slam on Friday January 19th, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. at the Law Offices of Lyda Ness Garcia at 501 N. Kansas (B101.)
Officials added, “The Women’s March aims to send a message to all levels of government, including but not limited to the current Presidential administration, that we stand together in solidarity and we expect elected leaders to act to protect the rights of women, their families and their communities.”
