Event description
We march to support and inspire each other and the nation to celebrate, honor and protect our diversity, freedom and human rights. We gather in community to find healing and strength through tolerance, civility, and compassion. This is a non-partisan march. We welcome all people to join us as we unite locally, nationally and internationally on January 21, 2017, to stand together in justice, respect and inclusion for all. There are over 280 marches in 35 countries uniting well over 1,000,000 people worldwide. This is only the beginning…

Time of Rally: 3 - 5 p.m.
Time of March: 5 - 8 p.m.
