This is not a UUFN Event but, as they did last year, the organizers are renting our facility.
There are 2 events.
9:00 am – First is the Women’s March on Newark, the event is open to everyone. Tickets are encouraged to help the planners but not required. Information about that can be found on this facebook event page.
11:00 am – The second event is the Rally for Women’s March on Delaware. That event is inside the UUFN building in Mackinnon Hall. IF YOU ARE ATTENDING THE RALLY YOU WILL NEED A TICKET. The number of seats available is limited by order of the fire marshall. More information is available on this facebook event page.
The Rally Facebook page links you to this Eventbrite Page where you can get the REQUIRED TICKETS FOR THE RALLY.
PRESS RELEASE FROM EVENT ORGANIZERS:
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.
RALLY TICKETS ARE REQUIRED FOR THE POST-MARCH RALLY. Marchers can not be allowed to enter the building after the march without a ticket for the Rally. This is because of the Fire Safety regulations.
