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.

We in Palestine, Texas, are organizing a "Power to the Polls" March and Voter Registration Drive on Saturday, January 20, for the Women's March anniversary weekend.

In order to vote in the March 6 primary, a voter must be registered by Monday, February 5.

“While there will be a national march in Las Vegas and much larger marches in Houston, Dallas and Austin, we want to have a local impact by highlighting importance of each citizen’s right to vote,” says Sharon Davis, Palestine resident, at-large board member of the Texas Democratic Women and Anderson County Democratic Party chair.

The March will begin at 10 a.m. at the Farmer’s Market near the Palestine Visitors Center, 825 West Spring St. Marchers will walk to the Anderson County Courthouse, where members of the Anderson County Texas Democratic Women (ACTDW) will be conducting voter registration from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

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.

Join women and men from throughout East Texas in Palestine for the first anniversary of the Women's March.
