Our rally is timed as the one year anniversary of our giant march and rally in Raleigh and with the hundreds or thousands of other marches across the United States and around the world on January 21, 2017. Fellow organizer Yevonne Brannon documented 13 marches in North Carolina alone! We will rally in solidarity with other women’s events that day, including those in Winston Salem, in Chicago, and in New York.

These are two of my favorite pictures from the Women’s March on Raleigh in 2017. The first shows some of my co-organizers leading the march.
The second is a view from the raised stage. About 20 Raging Grannies came to sing at the Women’s March On Raleigh! All in pink pussy hats and protest buttons.
You can see the seats in front for elected officials, older people and others who needed to sit in chairs. You can see the beautiful park space is covered with people and signs! Some people left because they couldn’t fit in Moore Square! — at Moore Square Historic District.
