Inspired by The Women’s March on Washington, South Bend is joining the nearly 300 bipartisan ‘sister marches’ taking place worldwide on Jan. 21.
Women and their allies are invited to stand together in solidarity with their partners and children for the protection of women's rights, safety, health, and families - recognizing that vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.
Organizers invite attendees to wear pink to show solidarity with women worldwide. Signs, noisemakers, and positive energy are encouraged.
This event will launch at 3:30 pm at the John R. Hunt Plaza with very brief speakers, followed by a short march through Downtown South Bend, concluding with a dance celebration at Vegetable Buddies at about 4:15, where participants can then enjoy food and drink and convivial networking after the march. Those who do not wish to march can enjoy the opening speakers at 3:30, and then rejoin the group at the nearby conclusion at Vegetable Buddies.
