The fourth annual Dallas Women’s March is set for Sunday, Jan. 19. State Representatives Victoria Neave and Rhetta Bowers, along with a group of dedicated volunteers, have organized this amazing event. This year, participants are celebrating the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment.
The march begins promptly at 2 p.m. at St. Paul United Methodist Church at 1816 Routh St. in Dallas. From there, the crowd will march toward the rally site to listen to incredible speakers, an amazing DJ and join thousands of others united in strength and solidarity.
The Dallas Women’s March stands for fairness, gender and racial equality, women’s rights and inclusion for all. The march also stands for economic justice, civil rights, religious tolerance and LGBTQIA+ rights. The Dallas Women’s March unequivocally rejects anti-Semitism, Islamophobia, racism, bigotry and all forms of hate, and opposes all forms of oppression and operates from an intersectional lens. The goal is to offer an opportunity to lift up the unique role and responsibility of all women in advancing social justice. Women seek to find common ground from which to organize, advocate and respond to the most pressing issues of the day, including but not limited to: immigration and asylum policies, all forms of violence, reproductive rights, environmental justice, gun violence, police brutality, indigenous rights and education.
The Dallas Women’s March is an independent, volunteer, grassroots organization. Organizers strongly encourage marchers to utilize DART, Lyft, Uber or carpool, as parking in downtown will be extremely limited.
