Power to the Polls: Anniversary of the Womxn's March on Seattle | Cal Anderson Park | Saturday, 20. January 2018

To mark the first anniversary of the Seattle Women’s march, the organizations currently planning separate marches on January 20 are coming together in unity to create one event in Seattle. The march will start at Cal Anderson Park at 10am. Programs featuring speakers from a broad range of organizations and communities will be run at the start and the end of the march.

The march organizers support The Woman Act on Seattle day of action to be hosted by Seattle Womxn Marching Forward on Sunday, January 21.

On January 20th and 21st, 2018, come together with your friends, neighbors, children and allies to recommit to another year of resistance and support. Together we will pledge our allegiance to the collective liberation of ALL of our communities.

Last year, the Womxn's March on Seattle made history, bringing 175,000 loud and engaged people to the streets. Then, in November of the same year, we saw record low voter turnout in Washington State. Just 37% of eligible voters participated in the 2017 elections.

2018 is a pivotal year for midterm elections. We have the opportunity to support and elect record numbers of womxn and POC to our state and national governments. We must all get engaged and stay engaged. As the launch event for the 2018 collective Women's March agenda, we are proud to present POWER TO THE POLLS by the Women's March on Washington. In Seattle, March to the Polls will kickoff WOMXN ACT ON SEATTLE, the anniversary weekend from the Womxn's March on Seattle.

Womxn Act on Seattle will include a series of trainings, lectures, panels, film screenings, food drives and more at hubs around the city all day long. The March to the Polls is also the starting point for one of the state's largest single-day regional voter registration and mobilization effort in history, led by Seattle Indivisible and Indivisible Eastside in partnership with Seattle Womxn Marching Forward. The Womxn Act on Seattle/Indivisible voter registration effortwill target districts with low-registration numbers to engage impacted communities and harness our collective energy to elect candidates that reflect our values. Womxn Act on Seattle reflects our commitment to collaborate with community partners and organizations to elect more womxn and people of color to office.
