LET'S DO THIS
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.
Join Women's March Rockford 2018 in Rockford, Illinois for the first anniversary of the Women's March.
