Open Mic Cancellation

Due to limitations of logistics and timing, we will not be able to offer an open-mic opportunity during the conclusion of the March at McKeldin Square. We apologize to those who have inquired about speaking, and regret that we are unable to make the microphone available to all. 

There will be a pre-set program of performers and artists at McKeldin Square, to offer inspiration and entertainment in keeping with the spirit of the March. Several community-based organizations will be staffing tables to share information and register voters. We hope that people will use the time at McKeldin Square to meet and speak with each other, socialize, learn, and connect.

Get Ready to March Forward!

Last year at this time, a small group of strong Baltimore women organized a rally at 33rd Street so that people that could not attend the Women's March in DC could still be part of the movement. They had expected about 100 people to show up; the official attendance was 5,000! And the "small" rally turned into a very large March down Charles Street. To inspire you as we move closer to the 2nd Annual Women's March on Baltimore, we have posted the below video made from last years' march. Its truly uplifting and inspirational! You must take the time to watch! Thank you, Donna Martin, for giving us permission to post your video!

On January 20th, 2018, we come together again to march forward..... unite and make a difference in this world!
