Where to join the Women's March on Washington-----locally!

The National Women's Law Center is sponsoring a Women's March on Washington.  If you cannot make it to Washington, there are 3 other chances to rally for women's rights nearby.    Millions of women across the country will march to show they stand united in defense of women's rights, equality and society's most vulnerable.

  1. Yamhill County Women's March    We will be joining in the Women's March on Washington planned in DC on January 21, 2017, only we will be in McMinnville.    We stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families -- recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.   We will gather at noon in the McMinnville Ballroom, 325 NE 3rd St, Mcinnville, Oregon 97128, for some speakers and an informal meet and greet.    At 1:30 PM we will begin walking around McMinnville with signs (you bring.) We do not have a parade permit so we need to walk on the sidewalks. The McMInnville police have been informed and have no concerns re this event.   Bring your children, your partners, your friends and please invite people from all over the valley. This is a perfect, safe, friendly opportunity to bring children.  The event is being sponsored by Yamhill County Awareness.

Supreme Court has spoken

Progressive champions in the House and the Senate are going on the offensive with the Women’s Health Protection Act. The bill, if passed, would protect a woman's right to decide for herself whether to continue or end a pregnancy, regardless of where she lives.
