The participants of the Women’s March on Washington will be hosting a rally on July 22, 2017 beginning at 2:30 p.m. at the Gazebo in the Historic Woodstock Square followed by a short march to The Dick Tracy Way Park (Children’s Peace Park) on Lake Avenue in Woodstock, IL. At the conclusion of this family friendly event we will be hosting an Ice Cream Social.
We marched in DC to be heard...We marched in Chicago, Rockford, and Elgin to be heard...In May we marched in Springfield to be heard...And now we march as one voice in McHenry County.
Speakers are planned, and there will be opportunities to commit to further specific actions. Bring your signs, your energy, and your point of view.
The rally will focus a local perspective on key women's issues and energize marchers, especially women, to become more engaged in the election process. Only by ensuring that qualified, committed women are on the ballot and win elective office can we be sure that the voices of women will be heard and acted upon.
