Women's March Hawai'i is here to empower, educate & resist! Aloha! Every island has its own page and you've found the page for O'ahu! Information here is for all advocates and allies who are interested in keeping the global movement alive! Women's Marches took place on Saturday, January 21 all across the globe - here in Hawai'i we had Marches on Kaua'i, O'ahu, Molokai, 2 on Maui (UH-Maui campus & Hana bay), Kona, and Hilo. The Women's March movement in INCLUSIVE, NON-PARTISAN, and EVERYONE is welcome. Admins will not tolerate any anti posts or hate speech. This event is about bringing aloha to a country divided. Hawaii leads by example and we are marching on behalf of those who need our collective strength. On January 21, 2017 we united for the Women’s March on Washington. We stood together 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. The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us--women, immigrants of all statuses, those with diverse religious faiths particularly Muslim, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Native and Indigenous people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, the economically impoverished and survivors of sexual assault. We are confronted with the question of how to move forward in the face of national and international concern and fear. In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore. The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message to our new administration on their first day in office, and to the world that women's rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us. We support the advocacy and resistance movements that reflect our multiple and intersecting identities. We call on all defenders of human rights to join us. This march is the first step towards unifying our communities, grounded in new relationships, to create change from the grassroots level up. We will not rest until women have parity and equity at all levels of leadership in society. We work peacefully while recognizing there is no true peace without justice and equity for all.
