January 20, 2018 – March to the Polls

Women’s March Chicago  “March to the Polls” will be held on January 20, 2018 in Downtown Chicago at Congress and Columbus.  It is a day for women and allies to come together in downtown Chicago to celebrate the spirit of the resistance efforts over the past year and unite to focus on the 2018 elections and beyond.

Participants can expect to make their voices heard to city, state, and national administrations. The march will also serve as a kick-off for programming that empowers voters to support women’s rights and social justice.  The fight for women’s rights and social justice through political engagement continues.

Jaquie Algee, WMC organizer and champion, said “the fight for women’s rights is only becoming more crucial. In 2017, activists, new and seasoned, joined advocates in the fight for women’s rights and social justice. In 2018 we celebrate that movement, and march our demands to the polls.”

Mark your calendars!  Check back for details and advocacy resources and programming to be announced for March to the Polls.
