The Women’s March network was launched with the inaugural Women’s March in 2017. Sister marches that were held across the country launched city and state chapters and have since been engaged in local and national advocacy that furthers the Women’s March policy platform.
Organizers within the Women’s March National network receive resources and collaborate on communications, mobilizing, training and advocacy. Over the past two years, groups within our network have engaged consistently in local and national efforts to oppose the rising tide of state violence that threatens women across the country and the world:
- Our chapters mobilized for A Day Without A Woman in March 2017 and marched from the NRA to the Department of Justice (NRA2DOJ) later that year to demand an end to gun violence.
- In October 2017, our network convened for the Women’s Convention in Detroit, Michigan to grow the movement through training and skill-building workshops, engaging panels on intersectionality, and inspiring speakers including Congresswoman Maxine Waters, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, Senator Debbie Stabenow and many others.
- The network came together again in Las Vegas in January 2018 to launch Power to the Polls
- State organizers mobilized around the country to demand an end to family separation
- Advocates with the network organized a month of sustained actions as part of the campaign to #CancelKavanaugh.
- The network maintained a consistent commitment to Get Out The Vote with the Call Your Sister phonebanking program that focused on woman-to-woman voter contact in the fall of 2018.
