March on Lansing
What: Rally on the steps of the State Capitol
When: January 21, 2017 – 1 PM to 3 PM
The goal of this march is to be all inclusive– it will be a peaceful demonstration in opposition to the wave of hate crimes and violence, and threats of official discrimination that have proliferated following the election . Women will march proudly alongside our allies from any religion, of any race, of all sexual orientations and genders, and of all abilities as a united front. We want to be clear that we won’t tolerate any sexism, bigotry, racism, hate, or intolerance from our elected officials.
We are for a Michigan that respects and protects all its citizens, that celebrates diversity and nurtures the human potential in each of us. This will be a sister event to the Women’s March on Washington for those who are unable to be there. Women’s March on Washington
