This year’s event theme is # BalanceforBetter. March with us as we again seek public policy changes for the betterment of women and their families. Our march will highlight the impending second partial shutdown of the federal government and women and girls in science and education. We wil also fight for public policies relative to science and scientific research, public and higher education, poverty, housing, welfare, jobs, reproductive rights, civil and human and women’s rights, immigration, and the legal system and our jails and prisons. Health care and voting are also among our concerns
Reproductive rights have been added as a key issue behind the attack on women by President Trump in his State of the Union on Feb 5, 2019, and by the Ohio General Assembly.. We must stand up on this issue. Stand with us please!!!!
