Women's March on Washington

Rebel Grrls

Join a nation of rebel girls and feminists to remind the incoming administration that women's rights are human rights this Saturday, Jan. 21, at the Women's March on Washington Albuquerque Rally on Civic Plaza. In addition to protesting the inauguration of a man (and political party) who wholly represents everything terrible about America and the elite 1 percent, the gathering will address how to take positive and peaceful action to exercise our constitutional rights, and protect women's rights, communities and families across the nation regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, immigration status, sexual identity, gender expression, economic status, age or disability. The rally will begin at 11am and go until 2pm. All are welcome. As Yoko Ono sang, “Freedom, O freedom, thats what we fight for. And yes, my dear sisters, we must learn to fight.” (Megan Reneau)

Gather on January 21 at Civic Plaza for the Women's March on Washington in Albuquerque Rally. This is an inclusive event, open to ANYONE who supports women's rights.

Mission Statement:

The rally is to show solidarity across the nation and at home for the DC March, which highlights that women's rights are human rights. The mission of the rally is foremost to join the many unique cultural groups across New Mexico in an inclusive dialogue and to become more educated about how we can take positive and peaceful action to exercise our constitutional rights.

It's an act to uplift our spirits, to broaden awareness, and proclaim "we will protect each other's civil rights, our communities, our families and our planet."

En Español: (Translation: Diana Galarza & Juan Carlos Vera)

Este congreso es una demostración de solidaridad, no solo en nuestro hogar en el DC March, sino a través de toda la nación con un mensaje contundente que “LOS DERECHOS DE LAS MUJERES TAMBIEN SON DERECHOS HUMANOS”. TODO con el propósito de promover, proteger y defender los derechos de la mujer.

La misión es convocar a los diversos grupos culturales de Nuevo Méjico en un intercambio de dialogo con el propósito de desarrollar estrategias educadas y pacíficas donde podamos resaltar nuestros derechos constitucionales.

Será un acto enriquecedor, para elevar nuestros espíritus, ampliar la conciencia y proclamar firmemente que "protegeremos los derechos civiles de los demás, de nuestras comunidades, de nuestras familias y nuestro planeta".

Here are some FAQs:

A: Please email abqwonet@gmail.com and our volunteer coordinator will be in touch with you regarding ways to get involved.

Q: Can I contribute financially?

A: Please visit our GoFundMe page www.gofundme.com/womensmarchabq - funds raised will be applied to the costs associated with coordinating the rally.

Q: Why are there events planned in both Santa Fe and Albuquerque?

A: The coordinators from both cities met up in mid-November to discuss how to make this rally available to anyone who wants to participate. We recognized that there are many people from all over the state who are interested in participating, and concluded that there would be enough interest to hold more than one rally. We welcome people from all over New Mexico to join in on either rally and we fully support the Santa Fe event, as well as the national March. Please feel free to join us at either event (we ask for you to only RSVP to the event you intend to attend).
