Announcing the Women's March on Philadelphia 2019 #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 represent all that we are fighting for.
We cannot do this without your help! Our organization is an all volunteer board who are dedicated to these causes and donate our time to the planning and execution of this amazing event. Donations are needed to pay for all of the various vendors for the event including sound, audio/visual, stage, tents, ADA seating, portable restrooms, lighting, etc...
