This year we return to the state capital. Join us on Saturday, January 19, 2019 as we gather at the New Jersey State House Annex (131-137 W State St, Trenton, NJ 08608) at 11:00 a.m. and march to the steps of the War Memorial.
The Vision/Mission of the 2019 Women’s March on New Jersey is to bring together kindred spirits of women grounded in diversity and celebrating the unique beauty of our strengths and differences. We resist in assuming agency for the many women whose voices have been marginalized and silenced. In turn, we shall uplift the histories and contributions of each woman as we stand shoulder to shoulder, in search of common ground. We accept nothing less than an inclusive safe space to develop an authentic understanding of each other.
