On Saturday, January 21, 2017, we will unite at the War Memorial in Trenton, New Jersey at 10:00 a.m. to rally in solidarity with marchers in Washington, DC at the Women’s March on Washington and at the other 96 sister marches being held across the United State. The event begins with a speaking program after which we will march approximately a half mile to the steps of the State House. There will raise our hands in solidarity to take a People's Pledge and hear a call to action.
At this peaceful march, we will unite and empower one another to use our collective, diverse voices to send a clear message that we expect our civil and human rights to be upheld and protected. We will remind those in government that they report
to us and that true power is retained by the people.
Women United, Together We Rise
Women of New Jersey will rise united. Though we are diverse in so many ways, we will stand together peacefully with our families and our friends, united in our belief that the strength of our country depends on the strength of women.
We rise together because we affirm the autonomy of women – all of us entitled to control our own bodies.
We rise united because we affirm the dignity of women – all of us deserving of equitable concern, respect, and protection from abuse and violence.
We rise together to advance racial justice and to fight discrimination based on our skin color, ethnicity, gender,religion, orientation, differing ability, or citizenship – all of us safe and free from discrimination and bigotry.
We rise united to dismantle the barriers that keep too many people from healthcare, homes they can afford, and the public education on which democracy depends – all of us committed to moving toward a better tomorrow.
We rise together to end police violence and mass incarceration - all of us standing together to fight against the inequality our sisters and brothers face everyday.
We rise united for urgent action on climate change - all of us recognizing that none of these rights matter if we do not have clean water, clean air, and a habitable earth to leave our descendents.
From our diversity comes one message: we stand to protect women’s civil and human rights. Women United, Together We Rise!
