Women's DC March - Illinois 1/21/17
$25,125 of $25,000 goal
Our monies will be used to pay for buses to get these Marchers to and from Illinois to DC for the Rally/March.
Students and Marchers of more modest means are who we will be funding. Outreach will be done to reach and inform as many of those interested as possible.
This Rally/March is an INCLUSIVE and PEACEFUL demonstration for Human Rights from the Lincoln Memorial to the White House.
Help us get as many Illinois women there as possible! Would you please consider sponsoring a Marcher to this Important and Historic event?
You can Sponsor a Marcher for only $156.00!!
But any amount is APPRECIATED!
We need to remind our President - Elect, Donald Trump that WE ARE STILL HERE and are STANDING TALL and FIRM for Human Rights.

Hello! I have several low-income/first generation college students who are very interested in getting to DC for the march but have no means to take the rally bus. (Our school is unable to sponsor them but would like to direct those who are interested to existent resources). Who should they speak with about scholarship money for the rally bus?

I'm on a very tight budget and can't afford to go to the march otherwise...I really want to be able to go. I'm marching for my mother, who passed in June of 2013. She was always a HUGE supporter of women's rights and I want to do this for her.
