Announcing the Women's March on Philadelphia 2019 #weshallbeheard

#WESHALLBEHEARD

We are beyond excited to once again host and organize the 3rd Annual Women's March on Philadelphia on January 19th, 2019. Our theme this year is "We Shall be Heard"! 
We shall be heard in our neighborhoods as we organize for action against gun violence, racism, antisemitism and Islamophobia. We shall be heard in the workplace where we expect equal pay for equal work and say #timesup to sexual harassment and assault. We shall be heard by the politicians who represent us on women's reproductive rights including safe and legal abortion, low cost healthcare for all, free college tuition, lgbtq rights and anti-discrimination policies, a pathway to citizenship and immigration reform, protection for the right and the ability for all citizens to vote and climate change policy.
We hope that you will join us at 10am at Eakins Oval as we march down the Ben Franklin parkway to the Philadelphia Art Museum where we will rally with a list of amazing speakers that repre…

We Resist. We Persist. We Rise.

Introducing the theme for the Women's March on Philadelphia 2018: We Resist. We Persist. We Rise.


We Resist.
We stand against those in our country and society who seek to divide us and stifle the diversity that makes our nation great. We will no longer allow the rights and interests of women and those who identify as women in mind, body, or spirit to be disregarded.

We Persist.
One year after the largest demonstration in the history of the world, we continue to speak up and remind everyone: We will not be silenced! We will be there in the streets, in the halls of Congress, outside the White House. We will march, we will rally, and we will organize in our communities. We will call out those who try to intimidate us. We will jam the phone lines, we will write postcards, we will connect on social media with others of like mind. We will work to get out the vote and we will be there at the polls to see change happen. We will continue our fight!

We Rise. For the second year, we come togeth…
