On January 21, 2017, we will unite at the State House in Trenton, New Jersey to rally in solidarity with marchers in Washington, DC for the Women’s March on Washington. We stand together peacefully 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.
Women of New Jersey will gather together, each with her own hopes for the future of our community, which include such things as no restrictions on current reproductive rights, equal pay for equal work, sanctuary, safety, and inclusion for immigrants and the Muslim community, an end to police violence against people of color, legal and human rights for the LGBTQIA community, action on climate change, and that members of all groups, most especially those of diverse faiths, orientations, races, and ethnicities, be protected from crimes of hatred and retain the rights they now have. We will stand together in support of justice for all.
For those that cannot make the trip to D.C. or prefer to march in their home state, this peaceful march will be a symbol that the diverse and powerful women of New Jersey and their supporters are ready to rise up in the face of bigotry and hate. And we will rise in large numbers. Together. We will unite and empower one another to use our collective, diverse voices to send a clear message that we expect our civil and human rights to be upheld and protected. We will remind those in government that they report to us and that power truly lies within the people.
Please help us by sharing this event with every person you know, from any and every background, that may be interested. Our march, an event built on the cornerstones of inclusivity, diversity, peace and acceptance, welcomes all women, of every race, ethnicity, religion, orientation, ability, immigration status, socioeconomic background, and age, as well as their supporters. The greater our numbers, the greater our impact.
