Description

UPDATE: Special Performance by Faith Evans Announced!

Join Women's March organizers, partners, artists and activists in Las Vegas, Nevada, for our one-year anniversary! Thousands of women, femmes and allies will come together again to celebrate one year of resistance and to launch our collective 2018 Women’s March agenda: Power to the Polls.

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. Join us in Las Vegas as we prepare to take that power to the polls.

Nevada has recent experience with some of the most pressing issues facing women in our nation today, from gun violence to politicians accused of sexual assault. As a swing-state that will shape the Senate in 2018 and as home to a strong activist network, Nevada is the perfect place to commemorate the Women’s March and continue building our electoral power.

This anniversary event will kick-off a national voter registration and mobilization tour targeting swing states to register new voters, engage impacted communities, harness our collective energy to advocate for policies and candidates that reflect our values and collaborate with our partners to elect more women and progressives candidates to office.

Expected speakers will include: Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood Federation of America; U.S. Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV), Dr. Melissa Harris-Perry, professor and political commentator; U.S. Rep. John Lewis (D-GA); Alicia Garza, co-founder of Black Lives Matter; Nina Turner, president of Our Revolution; Rev. William Barber III, civil rights activist, Marisa Tomei, Oscar Award winning actress; U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-TX), Idaho State Rep. Paulette Jordan (D-ID), Jane Kim, San Francisco Supervisor and Mayoral Candidate, Anna Galland, executive director of MoveOn.org, Ashlee Marie Preston, civil rights activist; Maria Teresa Kumar, president & CEO of VotoLatino; María Urbina, national political director at Indivisible, Dr. Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw, scholar and civil rights advocate; Women’s March co-chairs Tamika Mallory, Linda Sarsour, Carmen Perez, Bob Bland, and more.

To register to vote, Text P2P to RTVOTE (788-683)

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Who is organizing this event?

Why Nevada?
Nevada has recent experience with some of the most pressing issues facing women in our nation today, from gun violence to politicians accused of sexual assault. As a battleground swing-state that will shape the Senate in 2018, and as home to a strong activist network, Nevada is the perfect place to commemorate the Women’s March and continue building our electoral power.

Are local activists in Las Vegas involved in the planning of this event?
We are working with an intersectional local host committee, led by Women’s March Nevada, to ensure that this event is truly representative of the many communities in Las Vegas. See
this statement from Women’s March Nevada about the local organizing team.

Why aren’t we marching?
​January 21 isn’t the only day we can take to the streets. We’ve marched before and we will march again, but we’ve chosen to make the Vegas anniversary event a rally and literal call to action that will kick-off not simply a march but a national tour: the #PowerToThePolls campaign.

Is this event ADA-compliant?
The Women’s March Disability Caucus is working hard to ensure that the event is accessible to all. Find more information on accessibility here.

Is this event free?
This event is completely free-of-charge. We do ask that you register for the event to help us properly estimate the number of attendees, but there are no costs associated with registration. Register here.

What if I can’t make it to Nevada?
Women’s March Chapters are organizing exciting state-specific anniversary events, from marches to legislative actions to community events to voter registration drives. Go to the Anniversary Events page to find an event near you.

Why is the Nevada event on 1/21 when some of the state events are on 1/20?
The one-year anniversary of the Women’s March is January 21, 2018. However, some states have chosen to hold anniversary events on January 20, the one-year anniversary of the inauguration. We are excited to spend the entire weekend commemorating the 2017 Women’s March.

Where can I park? How much does it cost?
Parking at the Sam Boyd Stadium costs $10.

What will come next?
This anniversary event in Las Vegas will kick-off #PowerToThePolls, a national voter registration and mobilization tour targeting swing states to register new and disenfranchised voters, engage impacted communities, harness our collective energy to advocate for policies and candidates that reflect our values and collaborate with our partners to elect more women and progressives candidates to office.
