International Women's Day March and Rally

Rising Up

Join the international movement for equality this Wednesday, March 8, for the second Women's March at the International Women's Day March and Rally at the UNM Bookstore. The Albuquerque branch of the Party for Socialism and Liberation is hosting this celebration of women and rally against the new administration that is reversing nearly all the progress we've made as a country in the last eight years (#THANKSOBAMA). From 5-8pm join fellow freedom fighters in demanding full rights for all. They're trying to silence us, but it is our American right to be heard and served. As the great Malala Yousafzai said, “I raise up my voice—not so I can shout but so that those without a voice can be heard ... we cannot succeed when half of us are held back.” (Megan Reneau)
