Poughkeepsie Women’s March Across the Hudson
January 21, 2017 @ 8:30 am - 11:00 am
The Poughkeepsie Women’s March Across the Hudson provides a platform for supporters of equality to rally and march in the promotion of civil rights for all— regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, ethnicity, disability, religion or creed.
While each person may have their own reasons for marching, the mission is to bring people together to take a stand on issues that deeply impact all of us:
- We march to reaffirm the core values of freedom and democracy for all at a time when many fear that their voices will be lost, especially as related to women’s rights, immigrant rights, worker rights, reproductive rights, LGBTQIA rights, environmental rights, rights for all races, and religious freedom.
- We march in solidarity with communities most affected by hate, intolerance and acts of violence.
- We march to send a message to our leaders that we stand for human dignity, equal rights and freedom from discrimination—and that they must too.
