Taking a stand for women's rights in Kennebunk

KENNEBUNK — Community members are invited to gather on Main Street in Kennebunk at 10:30 on Saturday, Jan. 21.

People of all genders will stand for the protection of our families, our health, and freedom from violence, in solidarity with the Women's March on Washington.  

Women's rights are human rights.  We call on all defenders of human rights to join us.

This event is inspired by the Women’s March on Washington and organized by local volunteers. The Women’s March aims to send a message to all levels of government that we stand together in solidarity and we expect elected leaders to protect the rights of women, their families, and their communities.

Participants will gather at Kennebunk Town Hall and will line U.S. Route 1 south to the Waterhouse Pavilion and north to Shopper’s Village.  Feel free to bring a sign.

We are promoting a tone of respect and unity. Warming stations will be available at First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church and Christ Church on Dane Street. 

For more information, contact: Jacky Peters, 985-7620 jpkrf@roadrunner.com  or Miriam Whitehouse, 967-4379 casablanca1@gwi.net.
