On January 21, people and organizations across Vermont are coming together for a Women’s March on Montpelier to name and protect women’s rights, followed by a Unity Rally.

The Women’s March on Montpelier is held in solidarity with the National Women’s March on Washington and sister marches around the country and world. Developed and led by women, we welcome everyone to stand together for parity, equity, dignity, and justice for all women.

The Women’s March begins at 1:00 p.m. at Montpelier High School and leads to a Unity Rally on the Statehouse lawn from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m.

The Women’s March is followed by the Unity Rally, joining communities across our state with one voice against hate and injustice. This is an inclusive, accessible, and family-friendly afternoon of events.

The Unity Rally on the Statehouse lawn begins at 2:00 p.m. and will feature speakers, art, music, and opportunities to get further involved. These events are planned by individuals and groups representing the breadth, depth, and diversity of Vermont. We are building a movement of people and groups across the state to stand in unity for social, economic, and environmental justice.
