Women's March, Saturday, January 19th!
Save the date: Saturday, January 19, is the Spokane Women's March. (That's just 11 days from now, Saturday after the coming one!) The blurb below is copied from the Women's March Spokane Facebook page. Come downtown and meet friendly people. It's a celebration of what makes us human. Get involved in the local scene. See you there!
All inclusive, non-partisan, issue driven event, to rally our community together for the good of all women+ and allies.
Equal pay, raise your voice, racial equity, freedom from violence, quality child care, environmental justice, refugee and immigration practices, access to health care, education, women's rights are human rights... all voices welcome.

Women+s March Spokane endeavors to harness the power of diverse women in our community to create transformative social change; promote civil rights for every human regardless of age, gender, race, sexual orientation, ethnicity, ability, religion, housing or economic status; amplify the work of community leaders and organizations to educate, mobilize, dialogue and engage our community in collective action to advance justice, equity, freedom, and inclusion.
Keep to the high ground,
P.S. Here's another novel idea: Ride the Spokane Transit Authority's (STA) bus system! Here's a link to a map of the system. Here's a page with a transpiration planner. It's fun...and, in my limited experience, it is on time. It's cheaper than parking and you get to see our city from a different angle. Try it!
