Mid-Missouri Solidarity March
Start: January 21, 2017• 1:00 PM
The 2017 Mid-Missouri Solidarity March and Rally is a local event to be held on Saturday, Jan. 21, in downtown Columbia to demonstrate broad opposition to the Trump Agenda. It will include a short outdoor rally, a march and conclude with an indoor rally. We come from diverse constituencies and are united in our recognition that the Trump presidency cannot be allowed to be normalized. Rather, it must be resisted.
This March is in support of the 2017 Women’s March on Washington, D.C., which will bring together women and their supporters from across the country to show unity in the fight for the rights of women, other marginalized groups and issues including climate change, environmental concerns, minority rights, peace and social justice.
We will gather between 1:00 and 1:30 p.m. at Courthouse Plaza, at Eighth and Walnut in downtown CoMo. We will march at 1:30. The march will end at Windsor Auditorium on the Stephens College Campus. There will be music, speakers and tabling at this indoor rally.
This event, and a companion gathering that will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 20 on the MU campus are being organized by a loose network of area groups. The co-sponsors currently include the following groups (with more to be added): Columbia Area NOW, MDP Women’s Caucus, Mid-Missouri Fellowship of Reconciliation, Mid-Missouri Peaceworks, Mid-Missourians for Justice in Palestine, Missouri NOW, Missourians for Alternatives to the Death Penalty, Columbia Chapter, Mizzou Energy Action Coalition, Native American Support Group, Osage Group Sierra Club, Our Revolution, Mid Missouri, Planned Parenthood Great Plains, Protectors of Water and Land, Columbia Missouri, Race Matters, Friends, Renew Missouri; Social Action Team of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Columbia, Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom, Mid-Missouri.
