Matriots Columbus Women’s March Meet-Up – January 20th

Commemorate and March!

Last year’s powerful Women’s March in Washington, D.C. spurred us to action. This year, many cities are hosting their own marches with speakers, community building, and education sessions. On January 20th, join Matriots in Columbus to march and remind our leaders and the people of Ohio that women’s political participation is key to good government.

Any and all marchers are welcome to march with The Matriots for the Women’s March Ohio: Power to the Polls event on January 20. We’ll meet at the corner of Goodale and High St. outside of the Convention Center at 1:30 p.m. and march together to the Ohio Statehouse. If you have buttons, wear your flair! We’ll have foldable signs to share while they last.
