  • At Niagara Square, Buffalo NY. Come join in solidarity as we revel in the #womenswave and we #UnitetheStruggles. We have had record-breaking groups the past two years supporting the principles and the spirit of Truth and Love; Justice and Peace; Nonviolence, Equality, and Care for Creation. We are a sister march and affirm the national march’s values and principles (https://www.womensmarch.com/principles/)**. March route and specific local goals are in process.

    Organized by WNY Peace Center, with Riverside Salem Environmental Cottage. Many thanks to our cosponsors – 45 and still coming! Please see them on the pinned post in the discussion side of the event page. Cosponsorship means agreeing with the principles and actively publicizing the event. We also encourage all sponsors to bring banners of your group or organization to the march. Contact director@wnypeace.org if interested.

    If you’d like to rsvp (and be counted!), you can do that here on this page, and also at https://actionnetwork.org/event_campaigns/third-annual-womens-march-womenswave. Otherwise, we look to see you there! Mark your calendars.

    ** We are aware and mindful of issues surrounding the Women’s March, and have decided to not give way to the division. We support the principles and intention of the Women’s March, and have faith in all of the organizers’ ability to continue to address these issues; to continue to learn, grow and revise; and to work towards unity within the women’s movement. We are all works in progress and no movement has been without its hurdles. This moment in the women’s movement presents the need to address historical concerns within the movement, and to light a path towards healing, harmony and inclusion. We see this as a time when the community should not step backwards away from these concerns, but push forward to a place where all women can come to the table with solutions towards healing, and towards our greater harmony and progress.
