International Women's Day 2015 March in NYC!

The International Working Woman's Day Coalition is in its TENTH year (!) of leading the International Women's Day March in New York City.

This year we are calling on all women, trans women, allied organizations and communities at large to join us on March 8, the day celebrated around the world, to march and speak out against police brutality and terror, state repression and militarization.

We march to honor the mothers, sisters and daughters of the black lives we have lost. We march to honor the Black women : both cis-gendered and transwomen - we have lost. We march to oppose the current and historical state sanctioned violence and repression that is intensifying both locally, nationally and around the world.

This is a call for action to end this systemic state violence that is killing our communities. We continue to speak out against the domestic violence, economic violence and media violence. Though from different communities, classes, generations and cultures, together we march in unity.

Join us on Sunday, March 8 at noon in Herald Square Plaza at 34th Street and Broadway. There will be a short program and speak out and then we will begin our march step off at 1pm.

After the march, there will be a celebration with performers and speakers at the International Action Center (IAC) at 2pm located at 147 West 24th Street on the second floor.

SEE YOU IN THE STREETS FOR A BRIGHTER MORE JUST FUTURE FOR US ALL!

    Mind your clocks so we are all in step at the right hour to march friends!! Daylight savings is in effect at 2am on March 8th. We move our clocks forward from 2am-3am. We lose an hour of sleep but it just means we get one hour closer to our incredible Women's Day March! :D #IWD2015 #IWWD #IWDNYC #WomenResist #WomenPower
