MORRISTOWN, NJ — The Second Annual Women’s March in Morristown is planned for January 20, organizers have announced.
"We are excited to celebrate the achievements of women since last year’s incredible demonstration of resistance through sister marches across the country", wrote organizers. "Since then, we ran for office, we organized, we told our stories, we listened, and we voted. We are now ready to mobilize women across New Jersey to bring our Power to the Polls this November, and continue our march towards equity and justice".
The march, will begin at 11 am at the Morristown Town Hall, 200 South Street. The group will then proceed to the Morristown Green where speakers will address the crowd.
The goals of the 2018 Women's March, according to their website, include empowering every human who participates to stand up for their beliefs and rights, to connect victims of discrimination, civil injustice, sexual harassment, or unfair treatment in an environment that encourages them to share their stories, receive support and know that they are not alone, to remind elected officials of New Jersey that they report to the people and the people expect their civil liberties to be upheld, to bring hope to those who have lost confidence in our government by physically showing them that the power lies with the people, to remind New Jerseyan that our right to assemble, march, demonstrate, protest and vote is sacred and should be exercised and finally to bring Power to the Polls through increased New Jersey voter registration and participation in both the 2018 primary and general elections.
"We hope you'll join us in Morristown on January 20th, as we energize ourselves and focus on taking our Power to the Polls", wrote organizers. "Let us come together to celebrate our victories of the past year, charge our batteries for the pivotal new year, and send the message that our voices cannot be silenced.
