Women’s Vigil: Power to the Polls CT Sister Event
ABOUT OUR VIGIL/REGISTER- https://tinyurl.com/powertothepolls
This sister vigil will be held on Saturday, January 20th from 10-11am at Two Wrasslin’ Cats (374 Town Street, East Haddam, CT). For those interested in attending please RSVP at https://tinyurl.com/powertothepolls
One year after the historic Women’s March on Washington, where millions marched across the world and 500 showed up in East Haddam, this event will be focused on bringing our communities together and moving onto the next stage of the movement. In 2018, we will channel our energy and activism into tangible strategies and concrete wins to create transformative social and political change and we will be honored to have you join us.
We will be holding a standing VIGIL (with limited seats available for those who are not able to stand for the duration of an hour) not a MARCH (in order to increase accessibility for people with disabilities and/or small children).
The VIGIL will be near a sign that says, “Dear Muslims, Immigrants, Women, Disabled, LGBTQ+ folks and People of Color. We love you- boldly & proudly. We will endure. -Shaun King”. You are welcome to bring your own signs and banners.
We request that all participants park at the Rotary Skating Pond or the Upper Parking lot of Town Tavern & Restaurant and walk (approx 30 sec to the site of the vigil). For those with limited mobility there will be parking reserved in the parking lot of Two Wrasslin’ Cats (the site of the vigil). PLEASE TRY TO CARPOOL
The vigil is held in the parking lot of a Two Wrasslin’ Cats Coffee shop, so people with children, senior citizens, etc will be able to go inside and warm up during the event.
