March for Women 1/21

preparing signs for womens march

Following the lead of the League of Women Voters participating in the March for Women in Washington, DC, the League of Women Voters of Washington is proud to participate in the sister marches here in our state.

The League of Women Voters was born out of the struggle for women's right to vote. For decades, our foremothers marched. This month, the League will march again to fulfill our promise of Making Democracy Work for all!

In Washington state there are several local marches. Right now we are aware of official sister Marches in Seattle, Spokane, Olympia/Tacoma, Bellingham, Whidbey Island, Friday Harbor, Yakima and Chelan. The start time of most events is 10:00 am. For information and links to the local events, please visit the official site of the Women's March on Washington - Washington state. LWVWA will be a participating organization in the Seattle event

The League of Women Voters of Washington is a nonpartisan organization. We march peacefully to show our support for the protection of voting rights, health care, the environment, women's rights, and civil rights. As women and defenders of our democracy, there is more that unites us than divides us.
