On January 21, 2017, women will unite in Boston to march in solidarity with communities most affected by the hate, intolerance and acts of violence being perpetrated throughout the nation — among many are communities of women, immigrants, people of color, and people who identify as LGBTQIA and people with disabilities.
The Winchester Multicultural Network is an official organizational partner with this event because of the Boston Women’s March non-partisan support for protecting and furthering civil rights. The assembly point for the Winchester Multicultural Network is 10:45 a.m. on the Common near the Northeast corner of Charles St. and Beacon St.
From the Boston Women March for America site:
We stand for religious freedom, human rights, climate justice, racial justice, economic justice and reproductive justice. Together, we will send a message to our leaders and the world that the United States of America stands for values of human decency, equal rights and freedom from discrimination.
ALL ARE WELCOME. This is a march for all of us. Our goal is that on the day after the Inauguration, people from Massachusetts and hundreds of thousands of Americans from other cities, towns and schools across the nation will march together.
Please sign up on Facebook and share with all your friends and family.
We’re planning a 1.5–2 mile route through Boston’s Back Bay. Marchers will gather on the Boston Common “Carty Parade Grounds” which is in the park, on corner of Beacon and Charles Streets. A link to a map coming soon!
On this day after the Inauguration, people from Boston to Anchorage will march for American ideals in the spirit of democracy. Women are leading the march, and men and children are welcome and encouraged to attend.
The program will showcase nationally recognized advocates, performing artists, thought leaders and the passionate voices of community leaders who speak to the issues reflected in our mission statement.
Food trucks, portable lavatories and support for marchers with disabilities will be available. There will be no warming areas. Details are forthcoming.
We strongly encourage people to attend using public transportation. Please visit MBTA website for transportation options.
