Day 6:20 am
The Women’s March on Washington will take place the day after President-elect, Donald Trump, is sworn in as the 45th President of the United States of America. People in the United States, but also here in Canada, are worried about what this presidency will mean for hard-won human rights in North America.
On Saturday, January 21st, thousands will march on Washington, DC, in solidarity with all those who are afraid that these rights will be chipped away or reversed under the Trump administration.
If you would like to show your solidarity with women, Muslims, immigrants, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, and LGBTQ people, there are local marches in which you can participate.
These are the marches taking place across our Synod; all are on Saturday, January 21, 2017:
