Join us on January 21st, a day of national organized action for all those who face discrimination, injustice, harassment, or other mistreatment, to meditate and march with The Interdependence Project! 

We will meet at IDP's space for a short meditation and intention-setting session led by IDP teacher Caitlin Bailey, then travel to the march start location together.

Please RSVP to caitlin@theidproject.org if you plan on attending. Due to the large number of protestors expected, start times of the march will be staggered. IDP will know by January 14th what time our start will be and our plans may have to adjust accordingly - please check back on this page and keep an eye on our social media for updates!

This event is sponsored by individual donors like you.  If you'd like to support IDP@Women's March NYC and our other initiatives for engaged practice, please make a donation at this link or become a Monthly Member at this link.

Stated Agenda & Goals of the March:

  • Empower every human who witnesses or participates in the Women’s March on NYC to stand up for their beliefs and their rights

  • Connect victims of discrimination, civil injustice, sexual harassment, or unfair treatment in an environment that encourages them to share their stories, receive support and know that they are not alone

  • Remind the existing government body that they report to the people and the people expect their civil liberties to be upheld

  • Demonstrate to the incoming cabinet the speed and ease with which the people can mobilize if policies promoting inequality arise

  • Bring hope to those who have lost confidence in the United States Government by physically showing them that the power lies with the people

  • Remind every American that their right to assemble, march, demonstrate, protest, and vote is sacred and only available to citizens of free countries, countries like the United States of America

From the march's official EventBrite page:

For those who are unable to participate in the Women's March on Washington but are passionate about equal rights for every American, you are most welcome to participate in this parallel Women March in New York City. Please visit our FAQ regarding times, route, maps, and other pertinate details.

President-elect Trump has announced that Trump Tower will act as his surrogate White House for the duration of his term. Marching to the doorsteps of this tower to promote the advancement of equality and human rights for all diversities sends a clear message to the incoming cabinet that we are watching. This march also sends a message to the millions of foreign onlookers that Americans believe in equality and stand ready to fight for it.

More details and updates from the organizers on the march's logistical details can be found at the official Facebook page and FAQ.
