March to the Polls 2018
In 2018, Chicago shows that women and allies continue to be fully engaged in the fight for women’s rights and social justice. Chicago stood 300,000 strong with Women’s March Chicago on Jan 20, 2018.
Throughout 2018 our focus is on the election cycle where marchers will show that women change outcomes at the ballot box.
Women’s March Chicago (WMC) will once again take over Grant Park on October 13, 2018, calling upon women and allies to come together and march as the polls open for early voting in Illinois.
Dubbed March to the Polls 2018, the event is a follow-up to the march held in January. As the assault on both women’s rights and democracy continues in this country, women and allies are more united than ever in their focus on the 2018 elections. This rally and march is a critical next step in voter engagement, as women deliver on the promise that they are changing outcomes at the ballot box to protect a fragile democracy. This rally will reflect the power of the women’s movement as we march and head to the polls in greater numbers than ever before.
