DemDaily: #WomenRiseUp

January 17, 2020

This weekend, on the third anniversary of the 2017 Women's March on Washington, women, men and families will march again on our nation's capital and in cities across the country.

The Women's March on Washington ushered in a wave of political power that has since inspired millions to vote, hundreds of women to run, and swept dozens of women into elected office -- all ready to lead transformative social change.

The mission: To send a message to the Trump administration and Congress that women's rights are human rights and that oppression of individuals based on their ethnicity, gender, disability or country of origin is unacceptable and a violation of our civil rights.

The 2020 event kicked off with a Week of Action leading up to Saturday's march, focused on the key issues of climate justice, immigrant justice, and reproductive health, rights and  justice.

March2020 is joined by close to 200 partner organizations, unions and companies, including DemList!
