3rd ANNUAL WOMEN’S MARCH; TRUTH TO POWER
WE’VE MARCHED. WE’VE ACTED. NOW, WE SPEAK TRUTH TO POWER.

Women’s March Florida Hosts A CELEBRATION OF WOMEN AND FEMMES!
10:00 AM march with MLK Parade to stand up for Social Justice, Civil Liberties and Unity
12:30 PM Truth-to-Power Event begins at Lake Eola Park Northeast Lawn.

In January 2017 we made history when the women’s movement took the world by storm with 576 solidarity marches across every state and every country. We shouted that we would NOT be silent anymore! We marched, we acted and now we are speaking truth to power!

Join us in Orlando, Florida on January 19, 2019 with our sister chapters from across the state, as we celebrate YOU, the women and femmes who won and who lead the grass roots efforts to make this all possible!!

We have a day of activities planned to lift you up and propel you forward, as we harness the positive momentum of progress that we have achieved, to help us stay energized and continue to drive positive change on issues that matter to us.

Activist Yoga and the Circle of Intention will take place on the northwest lawn.
