When: Sat., Jan. 19, 10 a.m.-12 p.m.
Following a wave of women elected to Congress in the 2018 midterm elections, Women’s March Vermont presents Women’s Wave Montpelier, a rally on the Vermont Statehouse lawn held in conjunction with sister marches and rallies around the world. “We’ve been organizing locally to advocate for the policies that matter to us and impact women’s lives,” says WMV cochair Kristen Vrancken. Activists hear from speakers such as former member of the Vermont House of Representatives Kiah Morris and former governor Madeleine Kunin. Folks can also expect the announcement of a women’s agenda that includes federal policy demands and highlights local progressive legislative initiatives.
