In 2017 we marched for equity and social justice. In 2018 we rallied to bring our power to the polls. This year, we mobilize to use our strength to create a lasting impact and honor those who have come before us. In 2019, the anniversary of the Atlanta March for Social Justice and Women coincides with the annual Atlanta Martin Luther King Jr. March. Because the Georgia Alliance for Social Justice, founded upon the Kingian Principles, wishes to contribute to the celebrations of Dr. King’s life and legacy, we are not holding a Women’s March in Atlanta in 2019. We are asking for our community to commit to a day of service January 19 with local organizations as a means of including Dr. King’s legacy in their resistance. We invite you to march with us on Monday, January 21 to celebrate our anniversary at the Atlanta Annual Martin Luther King Jr. March.
