Houston Women's March

$36,905 of $34,000 goal

Raised by 715 people in 13 months
Join the Houston Women's March on January 21, 2017! We're the official "sister event" in Houston for the National Women's March on Washington, DC.

Your donations will enable our local Houston free speech assembly to hire required certified peace officers to provide security as we gather at City Hall and register people to vote and encourage them to work for change. Additionally, your donation will help fund the Houston event website, sharing crucial information so participants are prepared to engage fully. 

Your donation is critical. We can't gather without the peace officers, and we need your help to hire them. 

"GoFundMe" asks us to explain: 

1. Who we are: Robin Paoli, one of the Steering Committee Chairpersons for Houston Women's March. 

2. Where you're from: I live and work in Houston, Texas, along with other Houston Women's March leaders.

3. Our relationship to the parties you're raising funds for:  I am the Steering Committee Chairperson accountable to the March for stewarding the money raised and using it for... #4 below 

4. How the funds will be used (be specific as possible)
hiring many peace officers (required!) for the safety of the marchers, event clean-up, City of Houston permits, the sound system, website, communications, event day support, and related items. All receipts and costs will be reviewed and approved by the Steering Committee and listed for donors.

5. We will withdraw the money to pay invoices for peace officers, event clean-up, permits, sound, website, communications, event day support, and related items. Any monies left over will be donated to the ACLU.  

Thank you for making the Houston Women's March a reality!

National leaders have asked us to create an oral history and archive of our historic Houston March.

YOU - your commitment, your generosity, has made this March possible. Together, Houston Marchers have achieved the fundraising goals for everything from peace officers to port-o-potties.

We're increasing the goal this morning in response to the request to establish an archive to gather your stories of "Why We March" -- photos, videos, audio recordings, poems, artwork, and potentially physical artifacts from the march (donated signs, t-shirts, etc.).

As always, from day one, all monies raised over and above the March expenses, will be donated to ACLU. ACLU is sending trained "legal observers" and their rigorous commitment to our liberties and freedoms protect our right to march.

From sea to shining sea, may we continue to be free.

As an old long time resident and radical in Houston, I can remember the days of the anti-Vietnam war movement and the civil rights struggles . While the demo was not as large as the past ones, it was still great Next time let's try to sing some old civil rights movement sons. Perhaps next time we should have groups of singers and talk to leap over the barriers with rights,

Thanks for organizing the march. This is a great start. We need to get involved at local levels to create continual resistance to adverse policies.
