There is NO sister march planned for Chicago this year!
Supporting Organizations: Answer Chicago
On the Anniversary of white supremacist Trump’s inauguration, we will take to the streets again to shut down racism, war & bigotry and save the planet. Join us. We must and will keep marching and fighting and building the people’s movement for the real and lasting changes that are so badly needed!
Multiple looming crises are confronting the human race and we must and will take collective action.
We have 12 years to save the planet.
We must resist the divide and conquer strategies of the rulers of this country and build solidarity with the refugees who are bearing the brunt of these increasingly reactionary times.
The U.S. foreign policy elite — in a thoroughly bipartisan way — is aggressively leading us toward confrontations with major nuclear powers.
Naked white supremacy and fascism are again emerging in the centers of power from Brazil to the United States to Europe and beyond.
Austerity has wrecked the working class and oppressed communities.
Abortion rights must be defended and so much more.
The people must and will reemerge as an unstoppable force in society to shut down racism, war & bigotry. Bring your signs, banner and voices of protest!
Gather at Wacker and Wabash at 12 noon. March to La Salle St (Chicago’s Wall Street)

It’s time to march again. And this time, we’re coming back with an agenda.
On January 19, 2019, we’re going to flood the streets of Woodstock Square in sisterhood with cities across the globe. The #WomensWave is coming, and we’re sweeping the world forward with us.
‘Healing, Community, Resistance’ is our theme. We are asking all participants to take action locally. We will rally at the Gazebo, follow with a march ending at Home of the Sparrow, 120 E. Calhoun St., where we will drop off donations to help homeless women and children in our community.
Please RSVP here and at the Women’s March website https://actionnetwork.org/event_campaigns/third-annual-womens-march-womenswave
Questions or to volunteer, please message us.
Organizers: Cathy Johnson, Ruth Scifo
Young women, femmes, non-binary folks, and allies of all ages are coming together in Chicago to stand in solidarity with the Women’s March on January 19, 2019! #WomensWave
The Women’s March believes that the single most powerful act we can do is prepare young people with the skills and commitments to take action around causes that matter to them with courage, compassion, and collaboration.
It is time for the next generation to raise their voices, and commit to dismantling systems of oppression through nonviolent resistance and building inclusive spaces for all. This includes all women—Black women, Indigenous women, poor women, immigrant women, disabled women, Jewish women, Muslim women, Latinx women, Asian and Pacific Islander women, lesbian, bi, queer and trans women.
The 2019 Women’s Agenda priorities that youth leaders will be speaking to are issues important to us:
• Ending Violence Against Women & Femmes
• Ending State Violence
• Reproductive Rights & Justice
• Racial Justice
• LGBTQIA+ Rights
• Immigrant Rights
• Economic Justice & Worker’s Rights
• Civil Rights & Liberties
• Disability Rights
• Environmental Justice
This rally is youth-organized and youth-led, but everyone young and old is invited to attend this event. More details coming shortly, and we will see you at Federal Plaza!
The time is now. You are NOT powerless.
Youth Empower is the youth voice of the Women’s March Network, aligned with the Women’s March Unity Principles. Note, this rally is not associated with We March On Chicago/Women’s March Chicago.
