HEAR OUR VOTE: VOICES OF RESISTANCE RALLY

On January 20, 2018, we will unite in San Luis Obispo to reaffirm our commitment to building a positive and just future for all, and to celebrate the spirit of resistance efforts over the past year. The rally is designed to engage and empower voters to support women’s rights, human rights, social and environmental justice, and to encourage participation in 2018 midterm elections. HEAR OUR VOTE!

The San Luis Obispo rally will be one of many worldwide events honoring the movement that brought out 5 million marchers on January 21, 2017, in what is considered the largest single-day demonstration in U.S. history.

The Women’s March SLO is committed to creating transformative social change. We recognize that there is no true peace, freedom, or inclusion without equity for all. Our rally speakers will represent voices of resistance. Their advocacy is aligned with our Unity Principles – ending violence, reproductive rights, LGBTQIA rights, workers’ rights, civil rights, disability rights, immigrant rights, Indigenous people’s rights and environmental justice.

WILL THE RALLY BE ACCESSIBLE FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES?

We are fortunate to have Katie Voice (back this year) and Lauren Lippincott for sign language interpretation. Mission Plaza is ADA accessible, and we will have a limited number of chairs for those that need them. Please make sure to check the weather and plan for your needs. Let us know if there’s something we’ve missed at womensmarchslo@gmail.com.

 

IS THIS A PROTEST?

This is a Pro Peace, Pro Inclusivity RALLY. We are not marching this year in San Luis Obispo. We respectfully ask that targeting of any one group or person not happen at this rally. This does not mean that we don’t acknowledge these feelings and points of view, but this is not the focus of this particular rally.
