Join members of Centro Romero at the Women’s March on Chicago on Jan 21st
On January 21st at 10 a.m., Join marchers as well as those from Centro Romero as they will CONNECT at Petrillo Bandshell in Chicago’s Grant Park to make their voices heard and to support each other in PROTECT-ing and furthering women’s rights and civil liberties. The march will continue ACTION afterwards by beginning/continuing to ACTIVATE in communities in ways that uphold values. On the day of the March, women are encouraged to create signs reflecting their specific concerns/demands expressed in a constructive way. Some signs will also be provided.
“Women’s March on Chicago CONNECTS our community as everyday champions of human rights for ourselves/others in our diversity. When we stand together, our strength multiplies and our voices must be heard.
Women’s rights are human rights, which together we must PROTECT and further. Through our march, we send a message to our new administration and to the world that we seek to PROTECT our civil liberties and rights. We are here to ACTIVATE. Fairness, justice, and equality require rigorous defense and promotion, and are not yet won. We recognize lack of fairness, justice, and equality are suffered by some much more than others. We recognize the intersectionality of disadvantage and oppression. We need to work until fairness, justice, and equality are reality in all parts of society. With this march, we are committed to continue/begin positive, peaceful ACTION in our lives and communities to move toward this goal, and to support others who do as well.”
