The NH Women’s March is an empowering event in support women's rights, human rights, social and environmental justice. The Portsmouth event is hosted by several grassroots organizations with deep roots and commitment to advancing these values in our community.
We care about our community and the relationships we have here. We want to use this as a learning opportunity for ourselves and for others who may find themselves in similar organizing situations in the future. Our only defense is that, in the pursuit of being fair and putting grassroots voices in the forefront, we missed some of the politics and optics. We appreciate your continued support and we look forward to another powerful Women’s March in Portsmouth. Onward.Occupy Seacoast seeks to clarify its position on the speaker roster for the January 20th event.
There will be speakers at 1 pm followed by the magnificent Leftist Marching Band!
It's been one year since the Women's March! Last year some of us marched from the Lincoln Memorial to the White House, some of us went to New York or Boston or Concord. Over 3,500 of us came out and closed down the roads in Portsmouth.
As bad as things are imagine how bad things would be if we hadn’t marched! We need to march again!
As a show of solidarity, to demand our rights to safety and health, as well as demonstrate our strength and courage, we'll be having another event here in NH that everyone is welcome to.
This is an INCLUSIVE event, and EVERYONE who supports women's rights and human rights FOR ALL are welcome. Invite your friends, family and co-workers. Spread the word!.
We'll be gathering in front of North Church, Market Square.
If you’d like to help us organize please message us here!
This is an event for ALL, including: women, girls, gender non-conforming, men, boys, trans, people of every race, religion and nationality, refugees, Immigrants and citizens, The LGBTQ+ community, people with disabilities, climate change advocates, veterans, Native Americans and anyone else who wants to come out in support of all of our rights
The Women's March 2019 is being organized by Occupy NH Seacoast and if there are other organizations that wish to step up and join us they can message us here.
