And WE NEED YOU!
Please come out and join us at Seventh Street Park at 1 pm, Saturday January 20, for the Women’s March down Warren Street to the Basilica..
We have great speakers lined up at both ends of the march. At the 1 pm rally, some powerful NY-19 women speaking out, and a rousing rendition of “We Shall not be Silent”. The Tin Horn Uprising Band will lead us down Warren Street, with more musicians in the crowd. Additional details to be announced…
At the Basilica, hot food and drinks, great live music, performance art, more impassioned speakers and surprise guests! Stay tuned for more!
There will be a shuttle bus running from Basilica Hudson to 7th Street Park, so folks can park at the end and start at the beginning! Shuttle service starts at 11:30 from the Basilica.
At Basilica Hudson, we will register voters in support of the national Women’s March Alliance project to register one million women by the 2018 midterm elections. https://womensmarchalliance.org/vote/womens-vote-faq/ The focus is on women, but men are encouraged to register too.
We will celebrate and be inspired by the strong women who are stepping it up in 2018, including:
• Didi Barrett, NYS Assemblymember, !06AD
• Jabin Ahmed Ruhii, Muslim Youth Coordinator
• Kathy Leck Eldridge, newly elected Greenport Town Supervisor
• Dr. Cricket Coleman, newly elected Columbia County Coroner
• Tiffany Garriga, Hudson Second Ward Alderwoman and Common Council Majority Leader
• Erin Stamper, Democratic Campaign Organizer
• Joyce St. George, Activist, Organizer
• Sarah Sterling, Hudson First Ward Supervisor and Columbia County Board of Supervisors Minority Leader

“It is so important that WE MARCH WHERE WE LIVE. NY-19 is an important swing district that will be key to flipping the House in November. The national spotlight is on us. The contest for our district will be as prominent and pivotal as the recent senatorial election in Alabama. A strong turnout for the Women’s March here will be a clear message that the people in NY-19 want an authentic representative, NOT one that is beholden to big donors. We will make a sound so loud that John Faso will hear us all the way in his home in Kinderhook, or wherever he is hiding that day.” —-– Gianni Ortiz, Indivisible CD 19 NY
