The Women’s March event is upon us and we are super excited! We have a lot of information surrounding the day as well as the rally itself so read on depending what fits your interest.
We hope you can join us and others. Bring friends and family, come to a meeting before, a party afterwards and wear your Woman Project shirts. Take lots of photos and share them with the world as we spread our strength in numbers.
In solidarity and excitement!

On January 21st, 2017, 5 million people on all seven continents gathered to commit to a world that is equitable, tolerant, just and safe for all, one in which the human rights and dignity of each person is protected and our planet is safe from destruction. On January 20, 2018, Rhode Islanders will gather once again to re-commit to those values.
The RI Women’s March 2018 Rally will include a diverse range of speakers, music by the Extraordinary Rendition Band (ERB), performance art by Brick x Brick, art by The Woman Project, and a Social Justice Expo featuring over 20 local civil rights and political organizations. Additionally, Happy Period will be collecting donations of women’s sanitary products (at the Woman Project table + more) for distribution and food trucks Presto Strange O Coffee Truck, Haven Brothers Mobile, Championship Melt, and Poppy’s Gourmet Kettle Corn and Waffles will be available.
> Our friends Brick x Brick will be present and doing an installation as well.
