The League is proud to partner with the Women's March on Washington - Saturday January 21. As women and defenders of our democracy, there is more that unites us than divides us. We march for voting rights. We march to reform money in politics. We march for health care. We march for the environment. Here is a link to the Women's March on Washington.
If you are unable to march in Washington, D.C., you can participate in the Women's March Minnesota, which culminates with a rally at noon at the State Capitol.
