2019 Seacoast Women’s March

Market Square
Portsmouth, NH 03801
United States

The Seacoast Women’s March calls for building a diverse women’s movement.

Women from our community will share their experiences and give speeches on topics ranging from the importance of community organizing to the need for reform of the democratic process. Speakers intend to highlight issues centered on gender oppression, racial equity, environmental justice, and economic safety. Organizers of the event hope to inspire individuals to connect with their community.

Ana Maria, of the 2019 Seacoast Women’s March planning committee, had this to say regarding the intentions of the March, “Our goal is to mobilize women, gender non-conforming people and our allies to bring as many people into the struggle against gender oppression as possible. This action highlights the importance of women’s leadership and participation in all sectors of work in progressive movements. It’s important that all participants connect with each other to continue building a movement.”

The 2019 Seacoast Women’s March is open to the public. All are welcome who wish to show their support for human dignity, freedom and justice for every cultural group. This will be a peaceful event. There will be multiple speeches from women from diverse cultural groups. The Leftist Marching Band will once again share with us their inspiring music.

The event is being organized by a coalition of local community activists including Occupy Seacoast, Rights & Democracy NH, Open Democracy, League of Conservation Voters, Union of Concerned Scientists, South Church, Seacoast Peace Response and The Resistance Seacoast. Other groups may also step up to give their support.
