Women’s March Chicago calls on women and their allies to join “March To the Polls” on January 20, 2018 at Columbus Parkway and Congress Drive in downtown Chicago. This is the same place where 250,000 of us turned out for the group’s inaugural march last January. Organizers are planning a similar event this year but with a new focus.
Women’s March Chicago’s “March To the Polls” – in concert with sister marches around the country – will celebrate the year’s active spirit of solidarity while mobilizing marchers to prepare for the 2018 elections—national mid-term, state and local. Organizers across Illinois have joined together to plan coordinated actions in Chicago, Springfield and Carbondale to again create a sense of community, and to commit to working the political process, to improve the lives of all Illinois women. The event will feature music and video while marchers assemble and a rally to kick off with speakers at 11 a.m., followed by a short march.
Kathy Sherman, CSJ, is organizing a bus for those who would like to attend. We would leave from The Well at 10 a.m. Please be in touch with Sister Kathy at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in attending.
