December 9, 2016 (New York, NY)–The Women’s March on Washington announced today that the location of our rally has been approved by an inter-agency task force. People from across the nation will gather at the intersection of Independence Ave and Third Ave SW, near the U.S. Capitol, at 10:00am on January 21, 2017. The Washington Post reported on this update on Friday, December 9, 2017.
The planning process will be ongoing until days before the march, and we will continue to work closely with the National Park Service, Metropolitan Police Department, Homeland Security, Capitol Police, and other agencies to ensure a safe march with all logistics in place to accommodate the number of people we anticipate convening. For security reasons, we will not release any further details about march logistics until a later date.
The Women’s March on Washington aims to send a message to all levels of government, including but not limited to the incoming Presidential administration. We stand together in solidarity and we expect elected leaders to act to protect the rights of women, their families and their communities.
