On January 21, people and organizations across Vermont are coming together for a Women’s March on Montpelier to name and protect women’s rights. The March is followed by a Unity Rally, joining communities across our state with one voice against hate and injustice. This is an inclusive, accessible, and family-friendly afternoon of events.
The March begins at 1:00 p.m. at Montpelier High School and leads to the rally on the Statehouse lawn from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m.
