Join us this Saturday as we march in celebration and solidarity of women and Latinos in our community!
Our Adelante Mujeres staff, supporters, participants, volunteers, and allies will be marching to champion women's rights and the rights of every member of our vibrant and diverse community. This is a peaceful demonstration.
The Women’s March on Portland is “a movement of solidarity for those facing oppression or fear as our country faces uncertain times under a new presidency.” The march coincides with the Women’s March on Washington, and many other sister marches that will take place both inside the U.S. and internationally.
When: Saturday, January 21st, at 11:45AM
Where: Our group will meet in the Mercy Corps parking lot at 11:45AM (Skidmore Fountain Max stop). The official rally begins at 12PM, and the march starts at Tom McCall park at 1:15PM.
What: A peaceful rally and 1.3-mile march from Tom McCall park to Waterfront Park. We will take a group photo at 12PM and then walk to the rally under the Morrison Street Bridge
