Grand Marais Women's March

We in Grand Marais, MN are organizing a MARCH on Saturday January 20 for the Women's March anniversary weekend.

Participants who want to raise awareness of the systems that threaten women’s equality, health, and human rights should gather in Harbor Park at 1 p.m. on Saturday, January 20. Volunteers from the local action group Arrowhead Indivisible will lead participants on a march through downtown Grand Marais, ending back in Harbor Park for a brief presentation. Participants are encouraged to bring signs.

The Grand Marais Women’s March seeks to highlight the many issues that affect American women today: from the sexual abuse and harassment highlighted in last year’s #metoo movement, to the need for pay equality, as well as the lack of female representation in U.S. politics. Organizers hope the march will remind others of the work left to do to achieve equality in our country and to also inspire fellow community members to take action, especially as the United States move towards the mid-term elections in November.

On January 21, 2018, thousands of women, femmes and allies will come together in Las Vegas, Nevada, to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the Women’s March and to launch our collective 2018 Women’s March agenda: #PowerToThe Polls.

From the Women’s March to the Women’s Convention, we’ve seen how powerful we are when we gather together, share space and lift each other up. While the official Women's March anniversary event will take place in Nevada, Women’s March Chapters are organizing exciting state-specific anniversary events throughout the anniversary weekend, from marches to legislative actions to community events to voter registration drives.

Together, we will show this administration that women are not backing down.

Join Arrowhead Indivisible in Grand Marais, MN for the first anniversary of the Women's March.
