Local women and their families, friends and supporters are turning out this weekend in downtown Spokane for the fourth annual Women+s March, coinciding with (but independently organized of) the national march in Washington D.C. “This is an important year. Roe v. Wade is being challenged in the courts again, as are the rights of many socially vulnerable groups,” says Spokane march organizer Murphy Sullivan. “Also, 2020 marks the 100-year anniversary of when the first women won the right to vote in this country.” Before and after the march, gather in the park near the red wagon for speakers, live music and free coffee donated by First Avenue Coffee. Don’t forget to bring signs and wear your pussy hats!
Sat, Jan. 18 at noon • Free; online donations accepted • All ages • Starts at Riverfront Park • 507 N. Howard • facebook.com/MarchOnSpokane
