A coalition of Cape & Islands women will be joining with their allies on Saturday, January 20 to celebrate their 2017 successes and to acknowledge there is still much to do to make sure every voice is heard and valued.

“This event is a real grassroots effort, being led by an ad-hoc committee of progressive women who want to continue the momentum of the Women’s March movement by giving value to every voice,” says Speaker Coordinator Tina Games.
 
“Our speakers will be sharing personal and professional stories that will inspire our crowd to keep marching forward, to stay engaged in the political process, and to keep focused on the issues that matter to them. They’ll be offering words of wisdom, based on their unique expertise/experiences, that will lift our crowd and help them see why their voice matters.”

A kick-off rally on the anniversary of last year’s historic marches in Washington, Boston and around the country will begin at 11am Saturday January 20 on the Hyannis Village Green. Immediately after the rally, the group will march down Main Street in Hyannis. The street will be closed to vehicle traffic for the march.

All are invited. Signs are welcome. Rally space is unlimited. There are parking lots nearby. One is next to Town Hall off South Street , another is off North Street in the 300 block. Carpooling makes sense. Arriving early is advised.
