WOMEN'S MARCH ON WASHINGTON- JANUARY 21st, 2017
OFFICIAL STATEMENT, National Organizers

On January 21, 2017 we will unite in Washington, DC for the Women’s March on Washington. We stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families -- recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.

The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us--women, immigrants of all statuses, those with diverse religious faiths particularly Muslim, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Native and Indigenous people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, the economically impoverished and survivors of sexual assault. We are confronted with the question of how to move forward in the face of national and international concern and fear.

In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore. The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message to our new administration on their first day in office, and to the world that women's rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.

We support the advocacy and resistance movements that reflect our multiple and intersecting identities. We call on all defenders of human rights to join us. This march is the first step towards unifying our communities, grounded in new relationships, to create change from the grassroots level up. We will not rest until women have parity and equity at all levels of leadership in society. We work peacefully while recognizing there is no true peace without justice and equity for all. HEAR OUR VOICE.

Women's March on Washington: Everything you need to know about the date, times and more

On Jan. 21, women across the United States will gather to offer a simple message to newly inaugurated President Donald Trump: Women's rights are human rights.

In the face of an administration led by an accused sexual predator with the power to substantially restrict women's reproductive rights, the Women's March on Washington will give women everywhere the chance to have their voices heard on a massive scale.

As of this writing, 146,000 women and supporters have pledged their attendance on the Facebook event page.

"In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity and justice who have come before us, we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore," write organizers on the march's official website. "The Women's March on Washington will send a bold message to our new administration on their first day in office, and to the world that women's rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us."

The Women's March on Washington will begin at 10 a.m. Eastern on Saturday, Jan. 21, 2017, the day after Trump's inauguration.

Although organizers were unable to obtain a permit for the march's original starting location at the Lincoln Memorial, they now claim permits have been secured for an alternate area near the U.S. Capitol Building at Independence Avenue and Third Street SW.

Because of security reasons, the march's route from there won't be released until a later date. Also awaiting announcement is the event's program, which the organizers note will feature "nationally recognized advocates, artists, entertainers, entrepreneurs, thought leaders and others."
