Speakers Announced + Why We March…

In the wake of the 2018 midterms that propelled an unprecedented wave of women to Congress, Women’s March Vermont announces a Women’s Rally in Montpelier in coordination with sister marches and rallies in cities and communities across the globe. The rally in Montpelier is one of thousands happening on January 19, 2019, commemorating the 2017 Women’s March on Washington.

“We’ve been organizing locally to advocate for the policies that matter to us, and those that impact women’s lives, and we’re flooding the streets in solidarity with our sisters in DC to remind the country that Vermont resists — and this time, we’re coming with an agenda,” says Women’s March Vermont organizer Kristen Vrancken.

Featured speakers include Kiah MorrisDr. Mariko SilverDayle SargeantMelody Walker BrookBrenda ChurchillKrista Scruggs,Tabitha Pohl-MooreAmanda GarcesSarah LaundervilleCaroline Whiddon,Freweyni AdugniaBeverly Little Thunder and MacKenzie Murdoch along with a musical performance by Patti Casey.

In addition to hearing from these inspirational women, we will be announcing the Women’s Agenda — a progressive and expansive set of federal policy demands as well as highlighting local progressive legislative initiatives that attendees can support. There will also be opportunities to volunteer for service actions taking place in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. on 1/21. Also in the spirit of the MLK Day of Service, we are currently seeking nominations of local organizations that could use in-kind donations that attendees could bring to Montpelier on 1/19 for collection and later distribution.
