Women's March on Washington and Sister Events Nationwide
 
There will be events held all across the country on Saturday January 21 in addition to the Women's March on Washington D.C.

Here is a list if you would like to attend an event in your local area:

http://www.womensmarch.com/sisters/

I am planning to attend the rally in Albuquerque, NM with friends. I am fired up! I would love to hear if anyone is planning to attend one and what your experiences are after you attend if you would like to share.

Here is the mission statement for the one in Albuquerque:

Join us as we gather on January 21 at Civic Plaza for the Women's March on Washington in Albuquerque Rally. This is an inclusive event, open to ANYONE who supports women's rights. Mission Statement: The rally is to show solidarity across the nation and at home for the DC March, which highlights that women's rights are human rights. The mission of the rally is foremost to join the many unique cultural groups across New Mexico in an inclusive dialogue and to become more educated about how we can take positive and peaceful action to exercise our constitutional rights. It's an act to uplift our spirits, to broaden awareness, and proclaim "we will protect each other's civil rights, our communities, our families and our planet."

This is awesome idea! I am going to check and see if they have a rally where I live too. I would love to attend the Wash D.C event but it's probably going to be very expensive :(

I will be in D.C. on the 21st. I booked a room a few miles away because when I first looked in October, all rooms in D.C. were in the high hundreds and thousands. I was lucky to find what I did. I am going down with a few friends the night before. There are a lot of commercial buses leaving from all areas of my state that morning, and seats are hard to come by. I am very excited about going.

I am currently trying to find someone who is selling vagina hats.

I saw a post by someone on Facebook Pantsuit Nation, or A.M.Jo

Pink knitted cap with ears, was cute, but not a sale site.

DapperButch 01-09-2017 09:31 PM

I am going to a march and rally in my state. D.C. isn't doable for me.

BullDog 01-09-2017 11:10 PM

Wow, it's exciting to hear about everyone's plans. I hope everyone comes back and reports on their experiences along with any news leading up to the events.

Yeah, we need those pussy hats. I think I would look real good in one, ha ha.

I'll be reporting on my experience. The lineup of speakers looks really good, and I'm very interested in hearing about ideas for taking effective political action and learning more about what is going on around my state.

Thanks everyone, it feels good to know people will be attending all over the country. We need to stay strong and take effective political action!

We're planning a caravan from work going to the Seneca Falls sister gathering.

I am going to the one in Portsmouth! I'll post all about it.

Looking at hotels near the White House - the hotel rates for 3 nights is anywhere from $1001-.$4,497. :(

CherylNYC 01-10-2017 11:18 AM

I'm going down to DC for the big march! I could go with my Union. They've chartered two(!) busses and there's still a little room. I could go with friends from the Lesbian Sex Mafia. So many LSM Board members are going that we had to change our regular meeting date. I could go with the Sirens Women's Motorcycle Club. I would have a place to stay, too.

I'm not doing any of that. Instead I decided to drive myself down on Sunday morning in my car, park outside of town and take public transportation in to meet with the Sirens. I'm really skinny and not built for the cold. I'll wear every warm thing I own and probably still end up dangerously frozen at some point during the day. This plan will give me freedom to skedaddle home on my own when I become too cold for safety.

For those going to D.C. If you need to use the metro rail to get to the march, hurry up and order online. They said the lines at the machines will be really long. So if you want to order them ahead of time, which I just did, the website is stating that to get your card before the Inauguration on the 20th you need to place your order by Friday, the 13th.

I am planning to attend the march here in Sacramento. Several friends are going with different groups and I am not sure if I will join up with any or go it alone.

Up in Canada ......
 
..... there are Women's Marches happening in several major cities including one about an hour from where I live in rural Manitoba (info is on FB). Also, I hooked a Pussy Hat for a friend ..... it doesn't look exactly like a knitted one but it is recognizable. You can see it here http://www.butchfemmeplanet.com/foru...pictureid=1238 and here http://www.butchfemmeplanet.com/foru...pictureid=1237 !

BullDog 01-10-2017 03:54 PM

Wow, I didn't realize there were marches happening in Canada too. That's so awesome! Thanks for the info sis!

We're going to a local protest in Western Mass.

Done deal.

Scheduled Lyft ride to my daughters house and then to Pershing Square. No car or stress needed.

Got credit for signing up.

BTW, frustration trying to schedule Uber in advance. They need to work on their app for that!

*Fuck Trump*

Unfortunately, I can't convince her to wear a pussy hat.
