We’re marching on January 20, 2018 and we’re asking you to join us!
On the anniversary weekend of the historic 2017 Women’s March worldwide, we’re inviting everyone back to the Iowa Sate Capitol. This is not a re-enactment of last year’s march, but a loud and visible demonstration of community actions leading up to the 2018 elections. We will unite again with other grassroots groups to celebrate the spirit of resistance, renew our commitment to build a positive community, and show the unity and strength of all Iowans. This march is designed to engage and empower voters to support women’s rights, human rights, social and environmental justice, and to encourage participation in 2018 elections.
IF YOU CAN’T HEAR US, HEAR OUR VOTE!
The Iowa march anniversary will be one of many worldwide events honoring the movement that brought out millions marchers on January 21, 2016, in what is considered the largest single-day demonstration in U.S. history.
The mission of Women’s March Iowa (WMIA) is dedicated to the voices of Iowa women. We show up as passionate women who deeply value equality, justice, and human rights. We are especially impacted by these issues and our voices will be heard as we create solutions for Iowa Communities both Rural and metro.
Our organization wants to harness the political power of diverse women and their communities to create transformative social change. Women’s March Iowa is a women-led movement providing intersectional education on a diverse range of issues. We want to create a platform for grassroots activists and organizers to engage in their local communities to dismantle systems of oppression.
We recognize that there is no true peace, freedom, or inclusion without equity for all. Our march will represent voices of resistance aligned with our Unity Principles — ending violence, civil rights, reproductive rights, LGBTQIA rights, workers’ rights, disability rights, immigrant rights, Indigenous people’s rights and environmental justice.
