January 16, 2017: Women’s March on Washington
Posted on January 16, 2017 at 12:00 AM
The Woman’s National Democratic Club (WNDC) continues its legacy of pressing for women’s and girls’ empowerment by participating actively in the Women’s March on Washington (WMW). We see this not so much as a protest but as a promise for future action.
WNDC has become the official Partner and Clubhouse for the WMW, and is offering four days of programs (January 18-21) that support our mutual goals (see: www.womensmarchevents.com). WNDC founding members marched to ensure the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920, and so we shall march again to honor our mothers and to secure the future of our daughters.
We stand for peace, justice and equality. We promise to sustain the momentum created by this march into the next day and the long haul. We believe that successful movements are everyday acts of resistance.
