January 20, 2017
Friday at 7 PM – 10 PM

125 S State St, Salt Lake City, Utah 84138

WHY?

-We need to organize, and mobilize a capable force, and show our strength and ability to organize against Trump’s policy Measures.
-We need to let Trump know that any and all regressive policy will be met with mass protest!

Stand against the racist, sexist, ableist, and overall bigoted agenda that Trump plans to promote for the next four years. We must not only oppose this agenda in words, but in action. We do this by hitting the streets, organizing our communities, and organizing on university campuses to fight for real change for the people!

Come out on Inauguration Day to begin the many of years of organizing and fighting back for our communities! Trump’s agenda will not win if the people are fighting back!

Park City, UT

We, in the creative and Park City communities, stand in solidarity with the rest of our country in demonstrating our respect for freedom, human rights, our safety and health, and in recognizing that the diversity of our country is our greatest strength.

We open this march and event to everyone who respects human rights, civil liberties, and diversity. Despite its title, like the marches happening nationwide, this march is for women AND men. Anyone who supports the rights of others and protecting those rights is welcome.

We have an opportunity in the creative communities to spread hope, tolerance and inclusiveness in our art and with our voices. We relish the chance to join Park City, its organizations and citizens, and our larger nationwide community on this day.

Chelsea Handler, a member of the organizing committee, will be in Park City to lead the march as well as serve as a co-host of the post-march rally. Additional speakers and guests are being confirmed now.

The march starts at 9:00 am on Saturday, January 21, at 220 Main Street (Wasatch Brew Pub parking lot).

This march and rally are not affiliated with the Sundance Film Festival or Sundance Institute. This is an independently organized march, and all are welcome who want to support human rights, inclusion, and civil liberties.

This is a Sister March to the one being held in Washington D.C. Women’s March participants stand in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families – recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country. We call on all defenders of human rights to join us. This is a movement that is led by women but is for all people. Men are welcomed and encouraged to join the March. Bring your kids, bring your partners, bring your pets – come one – come all.

Route:
We will meet at the city building and march down 200 N to Main Street. We will walk down Main to St George Blvd, the Blvd to 200 N and back to the city building at 175 E.

Start time is promptly at 2:15 pm from the city building – so try to get there a bit early. The march itself will likely take only about an hour or so.

Can’t make it to Washington, D.C., Salt Lake, or Park City? Join us in Ogden to show your support for each other and build momentum for action!

Many people today are feeling threatened and unsure about how to protect themselves and our community from hatred and support progress on critical political fronts. Resistance movements, calls to action, and individual initiatives offer options, but where do you start?

Whether you are a long-time organizer and volunteer or don’t know where to start, this event is intended to help you feel ready to move forward. I am organizing it as a private citizen in an act that I hope will spur others to take whatever action they can to effect positive change.

We’ll gather in the plaza at Union Station, march east on 25th Street to Washington Blvd., and end at Ogden’s Municipal Building. There will be a few short speeches as well as open mic time for participants who would like to share. Come with a sign and a friend!
