This flyer includes historical reference to the ‘Women’s Suffragist Movement’ and the ‘Civil Rights Movement’, both of which will be celebrated among many other historical movements that inspired change.
This march is to honor and commemorate the long fight for civil rights. This is an opportunity to move the masses, mobilize, and be a testament to a larger movement that continues the fight for freedom, equality and justice. We need to remind ourselves that even the smallest actions have inspired change, and we can still influence the world for further progress. The momentum of generations past still resonates within us, and the momentum from our generation only adds greater value to this fight. Civil rights issues that are still prevalent today, include (but are not limited to):
-Women’s Rights (i.e. reproductive healthcare)
-Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transgender Rights (i.e. marriage equality)
-Workers Rights (i.e. equal pay)
-Immigration Rights (i.e. citizenship)
-Voting Rights (i.e. electoral reform)
-Minority Rights (i.e. discrimination)
These issues are also considered ‘human rights issues’ and they all require a fighting hand for justice. This is an all inclusive movement, so I encourage everyone to join together and voice out loud what matters most to you. So let’s take to the streets and show our solidarity for the justice we seek in this world!
This march will be around 8pm in order to avoid the heat during the day and to give people enough time to congregate. Please gather at the front gate of the Capitol near 11th Street and Congress Avenue.
