Women from around Delaware will gather to march Jan. 20 to commemorate the Jan. 21, 2017, Women's March on Delaware and the Women's Marches that were held around the world.
Organizers are requesting that all signs and chants for the march be positive in nature. They are encouraging participants to take the time to thank police officers who are helping with the marchand to take any trash generated home. Families with children are very welcome to attend.
A ticket is not required for the march, but organizers hope participants will get an Eventbrite ticket because this will help help plan and will allow them to notify participants of any changes to the event schedule. The current schedule has participants gathering at 9 a.m. in the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Newark parking lot, 420 Willa Road, Newark.
The march will begin at 10 a.m., and is expected to be expect to finish by 10:50 a.m.
Tickets are available at bit.ly/2lTWA2K.
Confirmed speakers include Lt. Gov. Bethany Hall-Long; Rep. Lisa Blunt-Rochester; Rep. Paul Baumbach; Sen. Stephanie Hansen; Melanie Ross Levin, Delaware director of the Office of Women's Advancement and Advocacy; Laura Sturgeon, who is running for Senate District 4; Lisa Goodman, of Equality Delaware; Erika Gutierrez, an immigration rights activist; the Rev.
