This march is being organized in solidarity with the Women’s March in Washington, D.C. Here’s what the organizers have said:
On January 21, 2017, we will unite in Boston to march in solidarity with communities most affected by the hate, intolerance and acts of violence being perpetrated throughout the nation -- among many are communities of women, immigrants, people of color, and people who identify as LGBTQIA. Together, we will send a message to our leaders and the world that the United States of America stands for values of human decency, equal rights and freedom from discrimination.
The bus will pick up and drop off at All Souls
Pick up: 8:00 a.m.
Drop off: 7:00 p.m.
$45 Checks should be made out to “All Souls” with “Boston March” in the memo.
