Women’s March 2019

UUFD, Indivisible Durango and Planned Parenthood are co-sponsoring a community Women’s March on Saturday morning, January 19th 11:00 a.m. We’ll march from the Durango Train Station to Buckley Park.

If you’d like to help, please contact Bonnie
Meet at the train station on Main Avenue beginning at 10:30 to organize. Join in the rally at Buckley Park where the March ends and hear from community leaders.

The Rally will feature speakers, music, and a chance to get involved and meet other activists. Speakers will include Katie Young, Planned Parenthood Community Organizer; Captain Gail Harris, (United StatesNavy, Ret.); April Yazza, 2018-2019 Ms. Hozhoni, FLC; Barbara McLachlan, Colorado State House Representative, and Katie Kandarian-Morris, Minister, Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Durango.  Emcee will be Allie Wolfe, Activist, Comedian, & FLC Student.

The theme of the Women’s March movement nationally is Women’s Wave:  Building Power.  The Women’s March is a women-led movement bringing together people of all genders, ages, races, cultures, disabilities and backgrounds to affirm our shared humanity and pronounce our bold message of resistance and self-determination.

The mission of the Women’s March is to harness the political power of diverse women and their communities to create transformative social change.  The Women’s March is committed to dismantling systems of oppression through nonviolent resistance and building inclusive structures guided by self-determination, dignity and respect.

As we move forward into 2019 and beyond, we will call on the friends and connections made at this year’s march as a guiding light and source of continued inspiration as we all do the important work of grassroots organizing.

Signs promoting equality and justice for all are welcomed and encouraged.  Warm drinks will be available.
