In solidarity with the Women's March on Washington, Maui will host a unity march on Saturday, January 21, 2017 from 8 to 11 a.m. The march will be held at UH Maui College front lawn. Kaahumanu Avenue at Wakea. (Start and end point.)
Human beings of all races, religions, abilities, and sexual orientation are uniting around the country to speak out for the protection of constitutional rights, safety, health, and family solidarity. The march is designed to be as inclusive as possible while acknowledging that it’s OK to have a women-centered march.
“By recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are our country's strength, we call on all defenders of human rights to join this march. Anyone who is feeling afraid or marginalized, or supports those who are feeling marginalized at this tender time, are encouraged to attend” said Sara Patton, one of the Maui march organizers. “This march is the first step toward unifying our communities across the country, to create change from the grassroots level up.”
