The Women's March on Washington: Oregon StyleBonnie King Salem-News.com
The women's marches are a global demonstration of solidarity. Here is the information for OREGON.
(SALEM, Ore.) - Tomorrow, January 21, people will come together in Washington, D.C. for the Women’s March on Washington. At the same time, there will be Women's Marches happening in cities across the country, including many in Oregon.
These peaceful protest marches are organized by many moving parts creating a grassroots movement, and are inclusive and open to everyone. They are permitted, and working in cooperation with city officials and police departments.
Women, men and children will stand in solidarity with others committed to mobilizing against fear and the impending marginalization and oppression of others via the new administration, including the erosion of our civil rights.
Signs are encouraged, cheering and singing is expected, but NO HATE SPEECH is allowed.
According to The Women's March on Washington's official site, there is no official or legal relationship between The Women’s March on Washington and the sister marches around the country and world, but these sister marches reflect the vibrant, organic, grassroots nature of this movement.
"It was, and is, clear that the Women's March on Washington cannot be a success unless it represents women of all backgrounds," explains the Women's March website.
"It is our our desire to embrace the legacy of advancing equity and human rights set by these marches that we call on all people to join us at the Women’s March on Washington on January 21st."
