Women's March Gathering in Delhi-The Reporter
DELHI — Local supporters of the Women’s March on Washington, who are unable to travel to the nation’s capital on Saturday, Jan. 21, now have an option in Delaware County. A “Women’s March” event will be held from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Courthouse Square in Delhi.
The event will be a gathering, rather than a march, in support of the stated goals of the national march organizers — “Being proactive about women’s rights,” and even more broadly, “stand on social justice and human rights issues, ranging from race, ethnicity, gender, religion, immigration and healthcare.”
The event is not limited to women, is open to the public, and is non-partisan. Attendees are encouraged to bring signs, digital cameras and video recorders, and to use the gathering as an opportunity to share concerns and ideas.
The Delaware County Democratic Committee is sponsoring the event, and will also be collecting donations for area county food banks. More information and updates will be available on Facebook, at Town of Middletown NY Democrats and Delaware County NY Democrats, at dcnydems.org, or by calling Lisa Tait at 845-586- 3178.
