Women (and allies) are Marching on January 21!

Event Date: 
Saturday, January 21, 2017 - 11:30am - 3:00pm
Following the November elections, women from around the country spontaneously responded with plans to march on Washington.  What has resulted is a national march in Washington, DC, along with more than 200 companion marches in other US cities and more than 50 such marches internationally. The March organizers state the following as part of the mission:

The Women's March on Washington will send a bold message to our new government on their first day in office, and to the world that women's rights are human rights.  We stand  together, recognizing that  defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us....We call on all defenders of human rights to join us.

A companion march is being held in Madison. Women of First Congregational Church and allies are invited to attend the Women's March on Madison on January 21 at 12:00-3:00 pm.  First Cong and friends will gather on the south side of Library Mall at 11:30am near the University Club.  For those who are unable to walk the length of State Street, there will be speakers and performances at the Capitol. Join us to stand for human rights.
