Help Us Make History!
Updated: Feb 17
The Women's March ATX is the biggest political event of the year. Please donate to help us cover the costs as we prepare to kick off the march to the polls!
Did you know that it takes about 12 people and 9 months to plan the Women's March ATX? Did you know that we have to raise money and train volunteers?
The 2020 Women's March ATX is going to be the political event of the year. Why? Because not only is it a presidential election year, it also marks the 100th anniversary of some (but not all) women getting the right to vote. Can you believe that almost a century later women still don't have the same rights under the U.S. Constitution as men?
We believe that Women's Rights are Human Rights and that now, more than ever, we need to be heard. We are a 100% volunteer group of diverse women fighting to be seen by our government. We believe that democracy only works when people of all communities feel safe to speak out and vote.
When you think of the march back in 2017 do you think of the crowds, or maybe a great speaker? Our planning team is in the background making sure we have the required permits, a city-approved traffic plan, Austin police officers to keep our marchers safe, a stage for our speakers, and the less glamorous (but very important!) things like port potties and recycle bins through out the march route, and all of those costs add up.
We are preparing a march that you will LOVE and we need your help! Please give whatever you can and together we will make history. Even $5, the cost of a cup of coffee, would be greatly appreciated. It takes a village to put on a march!
We look forward to seeing you on Saturday, January 18, 2020!
Energize! Engage! Unite!
