Women's March Portland

  • Tom McCall Waterfront Park 1020 Southwest Naito Parkway Portland, OR, 97204 United States

Portland Chapter members RSVP here.

I was planning on attending this anyway, so why not go together? I'll be wearing my Ambi colors (pink, purple, blue), and it might be fun if others want to as well (optional). Who knows? We might even be featured on TV if we march together in our colors.

From their Facebook page:

We stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families - recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.

OUR MISSION

The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us - immigrants of all statuses, Muslims and those of diverse religious faiths, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Native people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, survivors of sexual assault - and our communities are hurting and scared. We are confronted with the question of how to move forward in the face of national and international concern and fear.

In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore. The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message to our new government on their first day in office, and to the world that women's rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.

We support the advocacy and resistance movements that reflect our multiple and intersecting identities. We call on all defenders of human rights to join us. This march is the first step towards unifying our communities, grounded in new relationships, to create change from the grassroots level up. We will not rest until women have parity and equity at all levels of leadership in society. We work peacefully while recognizing there is no true peace without justice and equity for all.

This is a free event open up to the pubic. We recommend getting there around 11:00am. The march will start at 1:15 PM and proceed south on SW Naito Pkwy. We'll turn right on SW Jefferson St, right on SW 4th Ave, and right again on SW Pine St. The march will end with a rally where SW Pine St. meets the park. The march distance is approximately 1.3 miles. I'll also include information on how to find me as well.
