Other upcoming events:
Event: Join UWNY activists as we march for equality at the 43rd Annual NYC LGBT Pride March
When: Sunday, June 24th, 2012
Where: From 5th Ave. & 36th St. to Christopher & Greenwich St.
The March began as an annual civil rights demonstration beginning the year after the Stonewall Riots in 1970. Over the years its purpose has broadened to include recognition of the fight against AIDS and to remember those we have lost to the illness, violence and neglect. It has evolved into being a celebration of our lives and our community.
Details: Although the Parade starts at noon, participants must arrive earlier. UWNY representatives will be wearing our apparel and will be marching with our banner.
Event : We are Women March
When: Saturday, August 18th, 2012
Where: Washington D.C. (Note that this is a national march for women’s rights at our country’s capital. We will try our best to provide transportation details, but suggest that members coordinate transportation activities as best they can amongst themselves.)
The goal of We Are Woman is to draw national and worldwide attention to the facts. 1,100 pieces of legislation, women being called “sluts” and “prostitutes,” birth control mandates, politicians like Rand Paul and Rick Santorum actively working to overthrow Roe V Wade, personhood laws, fetal pain laws. The facts are clear, the evidence is front and center. This is in fact a war on women, and we will fight back. We refuse to use violence or rhetoric or incendiary comments or lies to win. We Are Woman is firm in our resolve and committed to a non violent protest and march on Washington, DC. In order to be heard, we need not be violent, we need not be destructive; in fact our message will be heard more clearly if we are the polar opposite of the new GOP.
Details: Details are pending but can be found at www.wearewoman.us. UWNY representatives will be wearing our apparel and will be marching with our banner.
