Dear Feminist Friends
We’re looking for a member who plans to participate in either of our local “Sister Marches” to carry one of our official round NOW signs. Your Washtenaw NOW Board members are all going to Washington DC or to Lansing for the Saturday Women‘s Marches, so we won’t be available to do so locally. If you are planning to attend a local march, and would be interested in representing our Chapter by carrying a sign, please contact me ASAP.
Local March details:
Ypsilanti: The March for Love, Resilience and Action begins at Noon at Bona Sera Café, 200 West Michigan Avenue. The procession route will pass by and honor Ypsilanti locales significant to the movements for civil rights, women’s equality and human rights and conclude back at Bona Sera with a celebration of our people power. https://www.facebook.com/loveresilienceactionypsi/
Ann Arbor: Gather at 1:30 PM outside the Federal Building at the corner of Liberty and Fifth. The March begins at 2 PMand ends at the Diag for a rally. For details, go to https://www.facebook.com/events/1260030690742284/
NOW is the oldest and largest feminist organization in the country. We have been working on issues of equal rights and inclusiveness for 50+ years. Surprisingly, many in the younger generation are unfamiliar with NOW. We hope to remedy that as our Chapter becomes larger and more active!
Thanks for your consideration!
