The Women’s March on New Jersey 2018 will begin in Morristown, New Jersey at Morristown Town Hall, 200 South Street, at 11:00 a.m. The grassroots movement was triggered in response to the election of Donald Trump to send the new president a message about women’s rights and other issues on the eve of his 2017 inauguration.
After a welcome and send-off, marchers will head out through the streets, ending at the Morristown Green, where gatherers will hear from a program of diversified and compelling speakers. The event will conclude about 1:00 p.m.
The Women’s March on New Jersey 2018 is hosted by Action Together New Jersey, BlueWaveNJ, League of Women Voters of the Morristown Area, Mobilizing Montclair, New Jersey Citizen Action, New Jersey Working Families Alliance, and NJ 11th for Change.
Additional hosts include BLM Morristown, CWA – District One, Planned Parenthood Action Fund of NJ and Wind of the Spirit.
At last January’s Women’s March on New Jersey, 7,500 people who showed up at the Statehouse in Trenton.
Women’s March on New Jersey 2018 will be one of dozens of marches across the country that will try to continue the momentum and spirit of the massive 2017 Women’s March on Washington, D.C., and its sister marches.
“This time we’ll go beyond our state capital to amplify our voices to the people across New Jersey,” said Elizabeth Meyer, who founded last year’s Women’s March on New Jersey. “We seek to encourage them to use their power to vote instead of relying on the elected officials we have.”
