Heading into our 3rd year of the Women's March, We hear you!
We hear our local communities and we believe that no one stands alone. It will take all of us to create real change.
Our call to action this year is:
— Over 7,000 rape kits in WA State have not been tested and we can help clear the backlog.
Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women — The highest number of missing and murdered indigenous women is in our backyard. NO MORE!
No Child Sleeps outside — In order for our state to succeed is for our Children to succeed. They need basic human rights to be able to achieve their dreams. Every child deserves a chance to succeed.
Women and Environmental Justice — Our most vulnerable communities affected the most by Climate change. Clean Water is one of the basic needs that should be equal.
Last but not least. To achieve the above, we need Equity our 50/50 by 2020 campaign is kicking off and we need everyone. It is a fact that the more women that are in the board room, the higher chances are of a company thriving with peace and not just surviving.
We ask you to participate on Sunday and continue taking part in your communities all year around. Human trafficking happens in your own backyard, Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women of Washington should not happen, Rape kits sitting on shelf for years should not be acceptable. Children sleeping outside as they are without a home should not be the norm, Environmental Justice isn't just two words. We are highlighting what we CAN change not just yell and get our frustrations out for a day.
Who is welcome? Everyone who wants to create real change and be the change. First step is to show up. Celebrate those who stepped up and showed up and show support for our neighbors, friends and communities. Knowing your community is the first step to making a difference.
Our speakers list will include powerful allies to set the tone of making change now. Stay tuned! Assemble with us at Seattle's Occidental Park at 10:00am Stay tuned for more information coming your way soon!
