Women's March Date and Time
The Women’s March on Texas Capitol will be on Saturday, January 18, 2020. We will start gathering on Congress Bridge (see route information below) at 10 a.m. and march to the Capitol Building, arriving at noon. The rally will end approximately 3 p.m.
Print out the flyer and ask permission to post it at local shops and community boards. Mobilize your community and have them share the March poster and information through their own networks.
Marchers will start at Congress Bridge and travel north to the Texas State Capitol Building via the South Gates where the rally will be held. Here is a map.
The march starts at Congress Bridge and ends at the Capitol Building, so you may want to decide if it makes more sense for you to park near the start or end of the parade. Please note that there will be partial street closures south of Cesar Chavez starting at 5:30 a.m. Partial street closures from Cesar Chavez to 11th Street begin at 7:30 a.m. There are full street closures on 5th and 6th Streets between Colorado and Brazos starting at 9:00 a.m. There are many parking lots nearby the Capitol Complex. These lots typically charge a parking fee, so please be sure to bring money.
Where can I buy food/ water/ clothing?
Coming soon! Official t-shirts will be available soon. Day of the march - no purchases will be allowed on the Capitol grounds. Hydration stations will be located at the start of the march on Congress Bridge and on the Capitol grounds. Many local restaurants can be found on Congress between 10th and 8th Streets for food.
Where are the bathrooms?
Public restrooms are inside the Capitol, which may be entered from the West, East, and North sides. We will also have porta potties set up at the start of the march, as well as near the Capitol grounds. No public restrooms exist on Congress or Lavaca streets, most shops require patronage
Is there a spot for the disabled or elderly to sit?
Yes. There is a roped off section near the front of the stage for those with physical disabilities (wheelchairs, walkers, crutches, deaf). Space is very limited. Regular seating is not available.
What about the weather?
Rain or shine, we will march! If there is severe weather and the March needs to be cancelled for safety reasons, we will post it on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/womensmarchatx/
