She Persists Day of Action (Belfast)

March 8 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Wednesday, March 8 is International Women’s Day!

Women and allies, join us for a day of action to PERSIST in standing/speaking up about the issues of concern for us in these challenging times: violence against women, reproductive health/rights, racial justice, economic justice and environmental justice.

On this day, from 4-5pm, we will rally on the “resistance/persistence” corner of High/Main. Bring your concerns, your voices, your hearts, your friends/family, your signs…and your PERSISTENCE!!

After the rally, we will have a speak-out and/or planning session for the next action!

Inspired by PERSISTENT women–then and now–including the millions involved with the Women’s March in January and Elizabeth Warren’s recent PERSISTENCE in the US Sentate with reading Coretta Scott King’s letter.

Drawing from the wisdom of our past–gains made and lessons learned–to what we face in the present-day. We also look to a healthy, sound and whole future for generations to come.

We stand together as women in the US–and for women globally–who are impacted by the policies and culture of the US.

WE WILL PERSIST!!
