Organizers of this march wrote the following:
Several individuals working in collaboration have organized a local rally to be held on January 20th, 2018, from 3 to 5 p.m. This event is a “sister” march to the National Women’s March on Washington, as well as the Women’ March event being held in Raleigh, North Carolina.
The upcoming event is an anniversary of the 2017 Women’s March on Hillsborough. Last year’s event was a great success, providing people with the chance to be involved in their local community, rather than travelling to DC or Raleigh.
During the historic nationwide gathering of women and their supporters in 2017, the spirit of advocacy and activism was truly rekindled. This year’s event proclaims that we should not simply MARCH on this occasion, but instead capture the momentum and turn it into ACTION. The latter is essential to harness our collective power — for the benefit of our local communities, our families, and our nation.
Further, we would like to acknowledge the diversity of our community and welcome people of every gender/gender identity to participate.
The event will include speeches, live music, and advocacy information.
