On January 20, 2018, on the one-year anniversary of the first Women’s March, people of all backgrounds will come together in Hartford to defend women's rights, workers’ rights, civil rights, immigrant rights, and much more.
What is the mission of the Connecticut Women’s March?
Join Women's March organizers, partners, artists and activists for our one-year anniversary and to launch the collective 2018 Women’s March agenda. The mission includes an important section on workers’ rights that, in part, reads:
“All women should be paid equitably, with access to affordable childcare, sick days, healthcare, paid family leave, and healthy work environments. All workers – including domestic and farm workers, undocumented and migrant workers – must have the right to organize and fight for a living wage.”
Is this a march or a rally?
There will be a march at 12:30 p.m. from the north side of the Corning Fountain to arrive at the Capitol at 1:00 p.m. Those with limited mobility or those who do not wish to march can just gather at the Capitol.
What time does it start and end?
The Hartford, CT Women’s March will take place on January 20, 2018 from 12:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the State Capitol. There will speakers, tables from activist organizations, and voter registration. Signs, chants, gear, and enthusiasm are entirely encouraged.
