Women’s March on Washington 2018
Washington, D.C.: On January 20, 2018, women and allies will once again take to the streets of the nation’s capitol to make a powerful statement to the current administration and the rest of the world. In a follow-up to the largest demonstration in U.S. history, people from across the country will meet at the Reflecting Pool in front of the Lincoln Memorial at 11a.m. where March Forward Virginia (formerly the Women’s March on Washington-Virginia Chapter) will host a rally showcasing several speakers followed by a march on the White House.
March On The Polls, the Anniversary to the 2017 Women's March, exists to advance peaceful and positive progress in communities across the country, with the goal of ensuring all women and their allies persist in civic and political roles moving into 2018. This past year featured an historic number of women engaging in the political process – including running for office – and it is vital that women and their allies continue to take an active role in 2018 and all future elections.
The unifying theme of the movement is: When we vote, we win. When we stay engaged, we win. When we support each other, we win!
March On The Polls D.C. is part of the national Women's March larger #WeekendOfWomen, with sister marches being planned in 30+ cities and localities all across the country. From the streets of Chicago, to Columbus, and Memphis, all across this nation women and allies will once again mobilize to stand together in solidarity and action! You can find other marches across the country at www.marchonthepolls.org
