JANUARY 9, 2018
On Saturday, January 20, 2018 Women from around Delaware will gather to march again to commemorate the January 21, 2017, Women’s March on Delaware and the Women’s Marches that were held around the world on that day.
Participants are marching for a more just and compassionate world. “We will be people of all genders, people of many colors, people of many faiths and traditions, young, old, differently-abled, and loving whom we love, and each of us has our own story. Together #WeThePeople are leading the way!”

Organizers are requesting that ALL signs and chants for the march be positive in nature. They are encouraging participants to take the time to thank any police officers who are helping with the march, and to please take any trash you might generate home with you. Organizers hope that, as was the case for the 2017 Women’s March, everyone treats each other with kindness and respect. Families with children are very welcome to attend.

A ticket is not required for the march, but organizers hope everyone will get an Eventbrite ticket. This will help them plan, and will allow them to notify participants of any changes to the event schedule. The current schedule has participants gathering at 9:00 am in the UUFN parking lot. The march will begin at 10:00 am., and is expected to be to finish by 10:50 am. Tickets are available thru Eventbrite and can be reserved there and through the Facebook Event Page which connects to Eventbrite.

After the March at 11:00am, the organizers have planned a Rally that will occur in Mackinnon Hall in the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Newark Building.  ANYONE ATTENDING THE RALLY WILL NEED A TICKET FOR THE RALLY INSIDE AT 11AM.
