In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.
We support the advocacy and resistance movements that reflect our multiple and intersecting identities. We call on all defenders of human rights to join us. This march is the first step towards unifying our communities, grounded in new relationships, to create change from the grassroots level up. We work peacefully while recognizing there is no true peace without justice and equity for all.
We have created a Women On A Roll shirt to wear at the march so we can participate as a contingency and find each other easily. Please note: this is optional and you are all welcome to join our group whether or not you chose to order the shirt. We have worked hard to keep the price as low as possible to make it affordable for everyone. Here is the design. Our new travel logo was recently created by Wesla Weller and I felt by adding these meaningful words around the globe created a strong message for uniting for world peace.

If you ordered a shirt for the March, you should have received it by now. If not, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Please consider wearing a 32 Degrees Heat Shirt underneath your WOAR shirt. Costco usually sells them. If it gets a little warmer that should be enough for the March so we can proudly show our shirts in unity!
