From SA to DC, Women March Against Hate

January 21, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Free


11am – State of Community Address @ City Hall
Noon – MARCH
1pm-ish – Vision for Our Community Address & space to interact and build (location TBA)
*********SATURDAY, JANUARY 21st, mujeres and communities of San Antonio join women-led actions throughout the u.s. and the world in marching against the hate, misogyny, transphobia, homophobia, xenophobia, displacement, racism, violence against our peoples and planet, and all the oppressions that the new u.s. federal administration has vowed to embrace and perpetuate. We march in solidarity with our regional, national and global neighbors, who share our burden of any u.s. election results.

And, while we strategize how to survive the next presidential term, we in San Antonio also face critically important LOCAL ELECTIONS IN MAY. The stakes and issues are similar to those in the recent federal elections, but our ability to participate, impact, and have a voice in shaping the community we want to live in is magnified.

On Saturday, January 21, the day after the u.s. presidential inauguration, mujeres of San Antonio and our allies call for the Candidates for Mayor and City Council to acknowledge that our city is not for sale, that water is sacred, and that our neighborhoods deserve improved infrastructure and fair access to quality education, health & well-being.

******
THE MARCH starts downtown with a State of Our Community address and ends with a rally/gathering lifting Our Visions for Our Communities. JOIN US!
