The second annual Women’s March Draws Women In Blue to State Capital is being held this weekend. The Idaho Democratic Women’s Caucus is proud to encourage our members who live in the Treasure Valley to attend. It is scheduled to begin on January 21, 2018, at 10 am at the Idaho State Capitol Steps. The rally is an effort to refocus attention on the Women’s Movement and rally local Democrats to the cause.
Democratic Women should wear blue t-shirts to the rally. The Women in Blue will meet just inside the front door. Show your support by helping us create a sea of Blue! Our voices matter and it is time that Democratic women of all backgrounds utilized their various abilities to make a difference in Idaho.
Remember that is was just under a year ago that the Idaho Democratic Women’s Caucus joined the Women’s March across Idaho and made history. On January 21, 2017, a Women’s March on Idaho took place in Boise in solidarity with the Women’s March on Washington. It brought together thousands of Idahoans to raise awareness about women’s issues. It was one of many “sister” marches which took place throughout the country.
The Women’s March is an effort to harness the political power of diverse women and their communities. Working together, the organization intends to create transformative social change. This women-led coalition educates women on a diverse range of issues like ending violence against women and improving the rights of women, workers, immigrants and other oppressed groups. The group also serves as an entry point for new grassroots activists & organizers to engage in their local communities through training, outreach programs, and events. The movement is “committed to dismantling systems of oppression” using the principles of nonviolent resistance.
