Tens of thousands of Baltimore area women went to the Women’s March in Washington DC in 2017, with over 5,000 more women attending the Baltimore march that same day.

Baltimore Women’s March 2018 is about marking that incredible day, uniting diverse women’s organizations to working together, and continuing to move forward toward:

  • Voting in the 2018 primary and general election in our state, making sure voter turnout is at least 40%, with women leading the march to the polls.

  • Electing candidates who fight for racial justice, economic justice, public education, criminal justice reform, environmental justice and access to quality health care.

  • Fighting for our democracy, making sure the institutions we hold dear work for all of Maryland’s people, not just some of Maryland’s people.

  • Reconnecting and recommitting to the fight for women’s rights.

  • Supporting legislation that protects, empowers and provides more opportunities for women, while also enhancing the issues we collectively believe in.

  • Calling out sexual harassers, sexual predators, and supporting the women who speak out.

  • Resisting the politics of hate.
