Why CARE will be at the Women’s March in Washington

Why CARE will be at the Women’s March in Washington

1/2/17

On January 21, thousands of people from around the country are coming to Washington, DC to join the Women’s March, while others will march in their own communities.  The reasons for participating are as varied as the marchers themselves.

Our reason is very simple: we are marching to show our solidarity with women and girls around the globe.

CARE and the CARE Action Network are made up of a diverse bunch of people, including Democrats, Republicans and Independents. We see this march as a historic opportunity for those from all walks of life, all over the country and all political persuasions to raise our voices together and tell the truth about the world women live in. We have a lot of work to do to make this world a better place, especially for those who are marginalized in society and made vulnerable to poverty, violence and human rights violations because of their gender.   That’s why we will be at  the Women’s March on Washington and why we want you to be there with us, even if you can’t come to DC.

Here are the details:

On January 21, 2017 we will unite in Washington, DC for the Women’s March on Washington. We will stand together in solidarity with our partners for the protection of our rights, safety, health, and families -- recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country and the broader world.

The march starts at 10AM and CARE plans on having a warming/social spot where we hope women (and men) will gather to share their perspectives, stories, solutions and goals from 8:30am-2:30pm. We’ll gather at the Holiday Inn at 550 C St SW, Washington, DC 20024. Its only three blocks from the start of the march and close to the L'Enfant Plaza and Federal Center metro stops. Join us to make this Women’s March the start of a new era in history where women’s lives, voices and political power are equal to men’s, and the American ideal that all people are created equal is a reality.
