The nationalist right-wing populism that is rising and spreading throughout the United States and Europe threatens the most marginalized groups in our societies including women, people of color, immigrants, Muslims, the LGBTQIA community and people with disabilities. ńWe must stand together and call upon our elected government leaders to protect those most vulnerable,î says Copenhagen March Organizer and Event Spokesperson Lesley-Ann Brown. ńWe welcome all members of the community to this peaceful march in support of human rights and dignity.î Marches will take place in cities across the United States and around the world including: Barcelona, Copenhagen, London, Oslo, Ottawa and Zurich, with more joining every day. Copenhagen March speakers will include local public figures, community leaders and advocates and will be announced in the coming weeks.
