Women’s March 2020 Planning Mtg

December 12, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

At the WNYPC/NRC, 1272 Delaware Ave, Buffalo 14209 (entrance & pkg round back behind bldg). Come out to help plan this major community event, working to help us #Unite.

We’ll share snacks (snack-luck) and ideas about focal points and ways to continue to #unite, especially here in the intersection, and re intersectionality.

The WM will be on January 19, 1:30-3pm, in Niagara Sq or City Hall Steps. That allows for people to attend the DC March on Saturday, 1/18, focused on Indigenous Women; and the MLK Celebration Program, Sunday 1/19, 6pm at Kleinhans Musical Hall, Symphony Circle, Buffalo.

Please check out the mission statements below, as well as last year’s cosponsors list. (And please let us know any changes – ie if you were a cosponsor last year and don’t want to be one this year, or the other way round).

This year, the Women’s March will be part of a Weekend of Action that includes the MLK Celebration Program at 7pm at Kleinhans. We are excited and honored to #Unite!

We’re having a meeting on Thursday, Dec 12, at the WNY Peace Center/NRC, 1272 Delaware Ave, Buffalo 14209; gathering 5:30pm for a snack-luck, and starting at 6pm to collaborate on the 2020 march.

Please let us know if you’re coming, and/or share ideas of points you think are essential for this year’s march. The National will be focused on Indigenous Women this year.

The Women’s March is an outgrowth of the work we, you, and the MLK Celebration organizers are all doing, all year along. This year more than ever, we need to keep the momentum going.

We appreciate you all so much, and of course we’ll keep working together!! Looking forward to our next ….

WNY/Buffalo Mission:

The Women’s March of Buffalo/WNY, opposed to all forms of oppression, seeks to increase equity and equality for women and all oppressed people by ensuring structural and systemic changes in our local government, local businesses and organizations, and within society at large in order to guarantee a women’s right to health, safety and freedom from violence. We seek this regardless of racial, economic, or citizenship status; and value the dignity and humanity of women of color, women with disabilities, and lgbt/queer and gender non-conforming people, and everyone’s equal place in the movement and in society.

(National Mission:

The mission of Women’s March is to harness the political power of diverse women and their communities to create transformative social change. Women’s March is a women-led movement providing intersectional education on a diverse range of issues and creating entry points for new grassroots activists & organizers to engage in their local communities through trainings, outreach programs and events. Women’s March is committed to dismantling systems of oppression through nonviolent resistance and building inclusive structures guided by self-determination, dignity and respect.)
