We Won’t Go Back (Portland)

February 10 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm

7:00 p.m. Wishcamper Center Room 102, USM Portland campus

On January 21, 2017 one of the largest peaceful protests in U.S. history took place in the nation’s capital and in over 600 cities around the country. Globally more than 4.5 million gathered on 7 continents for a day of action responding to recent threats to the rights of women, racial and religious minorities, the poor, LGBT people and to the environment. Rallies and protests have continued to take place in the weeks following the Women’s Marches with people across the country protesting the global gag rule on abortion and new U.S. policies targeting Muslims, immigrants, and refugees.

This evening features reports from Women’s Marches and other protests and rallies that have taken place since inauguration day.
