[image-1]For those who can’t make it to D.C. for the presidential inauguration, the South Carolina chapter of the Women’s March on Washington movement will hold a local demonstration on Jan. 21.
Promoting inclusivity, activism, and community, the gathering will take place in Liberty Square at 11 a.m. Those in attendance will then march down Calhoun and Meetings streets to the Charleston County judicial center, where a rally is set to begin at noon. Everyone wishing to participate is encouraged to RSVP online at actionnetwork.org/events/wmow-charleston.
According to the group’s mission statement, “We stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families — recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.”
UPDATE: The details of this March have changed due to the large number of interested participants. Per WMOW-Charleston’s Facebook, marchers are now meeting at nine designated parking garages around the city and rallying at Brittlebank park.
Each march (to be led by two marshals carrying balloons) will begin at 11 a.m. at the following garages/locations: 1 Cumberland St., 24 Calhoun St., 12 St. Philip St., Hampton Park, 399 King St., 158 Ashley Ave., 81 Mary St., 122 Bee St.
If you are unable to march, you can attend the rally at Brittlebank at noon.
