On January 21, 2017 we will unite in Bismarck, ND for the Women’s March. 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.
Women’s March on Bismarck
On January 21st, we will have a new president, and a new question to answer: How do we move forward in the face of the fear that this incoming administration is causing for too many of us? The answer is together, and out loud. On January 21st, we will unite in Bismarck to march on the Capitol and say in solidarity that we will defend the rights of ourselves and our neighbors and pursue equality for all peoples.
Here in North Dakota, we also face strong local opposition to equality and protections for all. The Legislature is controlled by lawmakers who are hostile to the rights of women and others whose freedoms they would like to curtail. No matter what happens at the federal level, in our state and local governments, we can respect our local values. This march shows both the national and state leaders that we stand up for women, immigrants, Muslims, LGBTQ people, and others who are being threatened by the new administration. This march will amplify our voices. We call on all defenders of equality to speak up, stand up, and join us!
When: January 21st, 1pm
Where: ND State Capitol
The rally will be on the Capitol steps followed by a gathering at the Unitarian Universalist church, at 818 E Divide Ave.
