FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Women's March on Philadelphia 2020-"The Year of The Woman"


PHILADELPHIA —Dec. 10th, 2019 — This is our 4th year of the Women’s March on Philadelphia and this truly does mark the “Year of the Woman”! After record-breaking elections of women (and specifically women of color and LGBTQ candidates), it is time to celebrate what we’ve accomplished and come together again in solidarity to proclaim what we will continue to fight for!

Attendees are asked to gather at Logan Square before marching at 10 a.m. toward Eakins Oval, to be led down the Parkway by local drum troupe Batala Philadelphia and Drum Like A Lady, where a rally will follow showcasing speakers and performers who embody the spirit of women's resilience, tenacity and empowerment. 

Since the inception of The Women’s March on Philadelphia in 2017, we have drawn record crowds to the Parkway, with estimates up to 60,000 people. We anticipate large crowds in 2020 as well.

While there is no cost to attend the Women’s March on Philadelphia, marchers are asked to register on the official event page on Facebook  https://www.facebook.com/events/412615479688569/ so that organizers can track attendance projections and communicate important event information to attendees.

In addition to speakers and volunteers, March organizers are also in search of corporate sponsors and donations to help fund the logistical elements of hosting this large-scale event, including items such as staging, sound equipment and seating for attendees with disabilities. Donations can be made online via Donorbox https://donorbox.org/women-s-march-on-philadelphia-2020

We also have a merchandise shop for fundraising, the only place you can find official Women's March on Philadelphia 2020 gear:
