This event has been CANCELLED.
Due to the the state of emergency, set for noon on Saturday, the 2019 Womens' March on NJ is CANCELLED. The safety of our participants, organizers, volunteers, and speakers is our utmost concern. Information regarding rescheduling will be shared when it becomes available. We apologize for any inconvenience. Please be safe this weekend.
The organizers of the 2019 Women's March on New Jersey invite you to join us on January 19, 2019. First, we marched together in Trenton, and then we rose together in Morristown. For our third New Jersey march, we'll be returning to our state capital, Trenton. Start time is 11:00 a.m., where we'll meet at the Trenton War Memorial. From there, we'll march through the capital and return to the War Memorial for a speaking and performance program. The event will conclude around 1:00 p.m.
The Vision/Mission of the WMONJ2019 is to bring together kindred spirits of women grounded in diversity and celebrating the unique beauty of our strengths and differences. We resist in assuming agency for the many women whose voices have been marginalized and silenced. In turn, we shall uplift the histories and contributions of each woman as we stand shoulder to shoulder, in search of common ground. We accept nothing less than an inclusive safe space to develop an authentic understanding of each other.
We are not here to condemn, denounce, assume or speak for others. We are here to accept, embrace, uplift and galvanize women of every hue, from every space, at any hour. Together we will grow to know that our various stories are as vital as they are valid. The gains for one mean nothing without gains for all. With clarity and some pain, we embrace a past when not all voices were listened to; in the hope of shifting the paradigm of privilege, so that missteps are not repeated.
Ours is a movement of authentic inclusivity. No woman will be left behind. Not because of her religion or her possible lack of education. Not for the color of her skin, her economic status or because of whom she loves. Our aim is to create a movement that resonates for the ages and that does not end as we return to our respective homes.
Our power lies in the strength of our hands and hearts – as we hold up half the sky. Our collective power lies in understanding that our differences are unique gifts that make up a rainbow that is bright, colorful, warm and all-encompassing. Together we strive to successfully accomplish what has not been accomplished before – an unyielding solidarity borne out of love, tolerance, understanding, support and mutual respect.
The Women's March on NJ is being planned, like it has been for the last two years, by a coalition of organizations and activists representing groups from across the state. We are an independent march that is not affiliated with, and does not receive any financial or organizational assistance, from any other organization. We believe the women's march is not about one particular issue, or alliance of people, but, rather a powerful movement that should be inclusive, accepting and supportive of all women.
Our steering committee this year contains 50 members and continues to grow as we incorporate as many diverse voices into the planning process as possible, from all races (the voices of black and brown women make up more than 75% of our core leadership team), ethnicities, orientations, faiths (five faiths and counting), ages (from age 20 to 80s), and abilities. Our members represent issues ranging from the environment, voting rights, immigration, and gun control to Black Lives Matter, healthcare, sexual assault, criminal justice reform, education, LGBTQ rights, and more.
