Join the movement: We’re marching. We’re mobilizing. We’re making history.
On October 17th, there will be a Womxn’s March to Protest Filling RBG’s Supreme Court Seat.
The Women’s March group will host a nationwide march on October 17 “to send an unmistakable message of our fierce opposition to Trump and his agenda, including his attempt to fill Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Supreme Court seat.
The move comes in response to Donald Trumps announcement that he is nominating conservative federal appeals court judge Amy Coney Barrett to succeed the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the US Supreme Court, which has set off a fierce battle in the days directly before the upcoming federal elections.
In a September 21 Instagram announcement, the group says: “We will march in force on October 17 to send a clear message that we will not allow Trump and the GOP to endanger our lives any longer. This is what we’ve been preparing for, this is why millions of feminists marched on January 21, 2017.”
The nomination comes at a critical juncture of history, as the Supreme Court will likely see cases related to Donald Trumps tax returns, government policies, election transparency, mail in ballots, Census length and redistricting, COVID, and could go as deep as Roe vs Wade or the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act.
For those not familiar, the Women’s March originated after the election of Donald Trump in 2016, and hosting its inaugural Women’s March which drew millions of people across the globe in January 2017 and a sea of pink, brown and black pussy hats in direct response to his comments of “grab them by the pussy”.
