Join the WBAI on January 20, 2018 for the March to the Polls organized by Women’s March Chicago. The WBAI was honored to participate in the planning committee coalition for this march. The goal of the march is to serve as a kick-off event to a year filled with advocacy, focusing on the March 20th primary elections and the November 6th general elections. This planning coalition brought together numerous organizations to work collaboratively towards common goals and action plans. The National Women’s March released the following statement regarding the March to the Polls:
The national voter registration tour will target swing states to register new voters, engage impacted communities, harness our collective energy to advocate for policies and candidates that reflect our values, and collaborate with our partners to elect more women and progressives candidates to office. The coordinated campaign will build upon Women’s March’s ongoing work uplifting the voices and campaigns of the nation’s most marginalized communities to create transformative social and political change.
Members and friends of the WBAI will meet on the northeast corner of East Monroe Street and South Columbus Drive at 10:15 a.m. on January 20, 2018. All are welcome. RSVP here.
We look forward to seeing you all there!
