Pikeville Women's March Celebration
Start: Saturday, January 20, 2018•12:00 PM
On January 21, 2017, people of all backgrounds--women and men and gender nonconforming people, young and old, of diverse faiths, differently abled, immigrants and indigenous--came together, 5 million strong, on all seven continents of the world. We were answering a call to show up and be counted as those who believe in a world that is equitable, tolerant, just and safe for all, one in which the human rights and dignity of each person is protected and our planet is safe from destruction. Grounded in the nonviolent ideology of the Civil Rights movement, the Women’s March was the largest coordinated protest in U.S. history and one of the largest in world history.
We in Pikeville, Kentucky will celebrate the anniversary of this historic event on January 20, 2018 with an anniversary event in solidarity with those around the rest of the country and world, recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country. Please join us!
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.
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 the collective 2018 Women’s March agenda: #PowerToThe Polls.
Join Progress Pike in Pikeville, KY for the first anniversary of the Women's March.
