DemDaily: #WomensWave: The Download on the March
January 15, 2018
It's time to march again.
This weekend marks the second anniversary of the 2017 Women's March on Washington, one of largest in the nation's history, and an unprecedented action in its opposition to the policies of a US President.
From the 600,000+ participants in Washington, DC, and in over 650 marches worldwide, a political movement arose that has since inspired millions more to vote and hundreds of women to run for elected office.
With the mission of harnessing the political power of diverse women and their communities to create transformative social change, the Women's March will again flood the streets of the nation's capital and in cities across the globe this Saturday, January 19th.
As a proud partner of the march, DemList invites you to join us!
