Women’s March on Washington- January 21, 2017

REMOTE SITE FOR THOSE THAT CANNOT MAKE TO DC, WILL BE IN DES MOINES @ STATE CAPITAL.

Mission Statement
On January 21, 2017 we will unite in Washington, DC for the Women’s March on Washington. We stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families — recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.
The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us–Women, Immigrants of all statuses, those with diverse religious faiths particularly Muslim, people who identify as LGBTQI, Native and Indigenous people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, the economically impoverished and survivors of sexual assault. We are confronted with the question of how to move forward in the face of national and international concern and fear.
In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore. The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message to our new administration on their first day in office, and to the world that women’s rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.
We support the advocacy and resistance movements that reflect our multiple and intersecting identities. We call on all defenders of human rights to join us. This march is the first step towards unifying our communities, grounded in new relationships, to create change from the grassroots level up. We will work until women have parity and equality in all levels of leadership in society. We work peacefully while recognizing there is no true peace without justice and equality. HEAR OUR VOICE.

This is an INCLUSIVE march and EVERYONE who supports civil and human rights 

– People of all ages and genders 
– People of Color
– Immigrants
– LGBTQ Community
– Individuals with Disabilities
– Climate Change Advocates
– Individuals from all faiths 
– Anyone else who wants to come out in support!
