ADK - Champlain Valley Women's March

Adirondack mothers are joining the Adirondack-Champlain Valley Women's March! 

From the event Facebook page.

"The Adirondack-Champlain Valley Women’s March will take place on January 21, 2017, to show solidarity with the Women’s March on Washington. Vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country and we will stand together to protect the civil rights, safety, and health of all. We call on all defenders of human rights to join us. The local march will take place at the same time as the march in DC and will be a peaceful, non-partisan event. Everyone is welcome and the event is free.

As the herald on a white horse in the 1913 Suffrage Parade in Washington, Inez Milholland symbolized the strength, power, and courage of women and led them forward into light. Three years later, she became the martyr and inspiration for suffragists after dying while campaigning for Votes for Women. On January 21, we will gather in celebration of Inez and all the advocates of human rights. Remember, women’s rights are human rights.

The event will begin at 10am with an outdoor rally at Inez’s grave in Lewis Cemetery behind the Congregational Church at the intersection of US Route 9 and Fox Run Road. The rally will reconvene indoors with songs, talks, and coffee from 10:30 to noon at the Whallonsburg Grange, Route 22."
