In January, 2017, women across the country marched by the thousands to affirm that Women’s Rights are Human Rights. Here in St. John’s, a wicked snowstorm forced our March indoors. With gale force winds and extreme conditions outside, March On St. John’s ran the only virtual March in the world – broadcasting to over 27, 000 viewers in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, and indeed around the world – over Facebook Live.
This year, we’re understandably weather-shy in St. John’s, but we’ll be running a great series to inspire everyone to find the right way for everyone to engage in feminist activism in their own home communities. Follow us on Facebook at March On St. John’s starting January 8 for daily posts from our leaders and guest posts from community leaders. It’s the 12 Days of January Activism! And congratulations to all those Marchers in other cities! Stay Fierce, everyone!
