WOMXN’S MARCH SEATTLE- updates

I know a lot of you will be attending the march.  I have held off posting anything because of the many changes. As most of you know Seattle will be the 3rd largest march in the Country.

General information:

Date: January 21, 2017
Time: 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Start: Judkins Park (2150 S Norman St, Seattle, WA 98144)
End: Seattle Center (400 Broad St, Seattle, WA 98109)

Here are the latest updates in the links. 

Organizers are working to ensure that anyone who wants to march in Seattle can!

This link has how to get to Judkins Park, access points to the march, public transportation and share rides: Getting there

Link to: Why We March

The vision for this march was inspired by the silent marches of the Civil Rights Movement.  Participants are encouraged to display signs with powerful slogans, quotes,and art, and to link arms as we move along the route.

This map shows-five designated access points along the route where participants can safely enter and exit with additional assistance.  Peaceful Marchers will be on hand throughout the march to escort people to these points.

For safety reasons, the route is not being released until shortly before the march.  Additionally, due to the variety of public events happening Inauguration Weekend, it is possible that the route will need to change last minute to accommodate other protests, sit-ins, and other rallies.

Please do not bring large bags.
