Sunday, January 20, 2019. New York City – The third annual Women’s March was yesterday, Saturday, January 19, 2019. Tens of thousands of women and men around the world marched in support of women’s rights.
Organizers of the event said on Facebook,
“Women’s March NYC and the New York Immigration Coalition (NYIC) are excited to announce that we will co-chair the 2019 Women’s Unity Rally in New York City. Women’s March NYC is the OFFICIAL NYC chapter of Women’s March — part of the national & global movement.
The Women’s Unity Rally in NYC will highlight the leadership of Black women, immigrant women and women of color as part of the national #WomensWave, and in response to the Trump Administration’s continued assault on immigrant communities and communities of color. Organizations including grassroots advocates, nonprofit community organizations, labor unions and more, will rally to demand justice for women, communities of color, immigrant families, gender-nonconforming individuals, all-faith practitioners, and people with disabilities. By affirmatively linking our collective struggles, we aim to elevate the diverse experiences of ALL women in the resistance.
We are elated to host the third annual Women’s March event, and in honor of MLK Day on Monday the 21st, we intend to honor the work and spirit of Dr. King in the programming of this event.”
