Women's March Wyoming
 
 

our vision and mission:

On January 20, 2018 we will unite again in Cheyenne, Wyoming for the Women’s March on Wyoming. 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 state.

banners & buttons bash

It's the new year and we are gearing up for the Wyoming Women's March on January 20th. Join us for banner, sign and buttonmaking, post card writing and pussy hat making in preparation for the big day. The goal is to make these items to sell at the march to help fund the costs of permitting, advertising, and generally running the March. If you have time to stop by we would love to see you. If you want to make a pussy hat please bring one ball of yarn (rumor has it that bigger the yarn the faster the hat making). 

If able, bring snacks, drinks (wine and beer too) to share.

THE MARCH AND RALLY

Over the past year, basic rights for women, immigrants, LGBTQ+, the religious and nonreligious, people of color and even Mother Earth have struggled to survive under the weight of the current administration and state and local policy decisions. America’s First Amendment has been challenged and healthcare for millions has been threatened. We must stand together to demand and defend our rights. Let your voice echo from the streets of Cheyenne. Show the Wyoming that red, white and blue are colors of bravery and inclusivity.

We will not be silent!
