Rise and organize! Join us for a Sister March in Williamsburg, VA as we stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families - recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country. Meet in front of the Courthouse on Duke of Gloucester Street.

March Guidelines:

  • We are non-partisan, and will not use the Women's March primarily to criticize politicians or political parties.
  • We will use no violence (physical or verbal) towards any person.
  • We will not destroy or damage property.
  • We will promote a tone of respect and accountability in our actions.
  • We will not carry anything that can be construed as a weapon, nor possess (or consume) any alcohol or drugs.
  • We will hold each other accountable to respecting these agreements.

Co-sponsored by Common Ground Williamsburg and WJCC Indivisible.

MARCH ROUTE and PARKING:

The March will begin at the Colonial Courthouse on Duke of Gloucester Street. We will march east to the Capitol Building then return down Duke of Gloucester St, finishing near Merchant's Square.

We recommend parking in the Prince George Street Parking Garage (230 N. Henry St) or the parking lots surrounding Merchant's Square. There is also street parking available along Richmond Rd and Scotland St.

You may park at the Colonial Williamsburg Visitor's Center (101 Visitor Center Dr) and purchase a $2 shuttle ticket, which will allow you to ride the CW shuttles into the Historic Area. This a great option for those who have limited mobility or may not want to walk the entire route. CW shuttles run regularly and stop at locations throughout the Historic Area.

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.
