On the anniversary of the Women’s March, we will gather again to rally for our mission. We will celebrate Women Leading the Resistance and uplift voices and stories of communities that are affected by the current administration and its oppressive policies. Join us in our efforts to empower our community and keep its activist spirit alive
Gather: January 26th, 2019 • 12:30-1:00pm
We plan to march first, at 1:00PM and the rally begins at 2:00PM
End: January 26th, 2019 • 3:30PM
Note: We are not stepping on Martin Luther King weekend activities. Monday, January 21 is MLK Day, and activities run the weekend before in many places. All claims that the Raleigh Women’s March is Jan 20 are FAKE.

We appreciate that so many of you are passionately invested in making sure that this event is inclusive, representative, and that it remains centered on and led by individuals from groups most directly affected by systems of oppression. As we stated the past two years, we acknowledge that racism is a cornerstone of the strategy to implement minority rule to the detriment of us all. We commit to embracing and understanding our different backgrounds, and to supporting and lifting up the leadership of women and trans people of color. We recognize that women do not and will not just lead on “women’s issues;” as organized women, we are leading and will lead in every area of the movement and of society. We reaffirm these guiding principles and we have set about planning the Women’s Rally on Raleigh so that the event remains consistent with them and so that our leaders reflect them. We acknowledge the real harm caused by tokenism and divisiveness in the history of the women’s movement. While we can’t change the past, we do work to ensure that past wrongs are not repeated here and that we move forward together to lead a loving, beautiful and creative resistance. As our 2019 Program Committee confirms the speakers and performers for this year’s event in the coming days, we look forward to sharing their profiles with you..In the meantime, we invite you to join us at planning meetings and we encourage you to visit our webpage to learn more about the origins and mission of the Women’s March on Raleigh.
