Join the League of Women Voters at the Women's March on Washington

Saturday, January 21st

As women and defenders of our democracy, there is more that unites us than divides us.

We march for voting rights. We march to reform money in politics. We march for health care. We march for the environment.  

Assembly: 9:15 am - 9:45 am

We will assemble at the at the corner of C and 4th Streets, SW at 9:15am.  We will be moving to the Rally location before 10 am.

Our meeting location is 2 blocks from the official start point and will likely be a meeting point for other organizations. Please give yourself time to find us. Organizers are expecting over 200,000 people (and likely a lot more).

Rally: 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

The rally starting location is the intersection of Independence and 3rd Streets, SW.  The program features nationally recognized advocates, artists, entertainers, entrepreneurs, thought leaders, and others will be announced in the coming days.  Check out the list of speakers here.

If you want to join us during the rally, please follow us on Twitter for details on our location.  https://twitter.com/LWVDC and https://twitter.com/LWV.

The march will walk west on Independence, turn north on 14th, west on Constitution, and will end at the intersection of Constitution and 17th.

March for Pizza

If you’re hungry after the event, Pizza Paradiso is supporting the League on the day of the march.  The restaurant will be serving beer from Denizens Lowest Lord (a majority women owned brewery). Proceeds from the sale of that beer will be donated to the League of Women Voters. Giving to the League never tasted so good!
