PVWM aims to make the march and rally accessible to all. If you need assistance due to limited mobility or disability, please check in with a volunteer. They will be able to answer your questions or point you in the right direction. PLEASE LET US KNOW IF YOU NEED A RIDE BACK TO YOUR CAR AFTER THE MARCH/RALLY. We do not have shuttles but will happily arrange for a ride for those who cannot otherwise make the return trip!

ASL interpreters will be at the beginning of the march and at the rally at City Hall. We will also have some chairs at the front of the rally for those who need a seat. Please leave room at the front of the rally for individuals who need to be closest!

If you have a specific accommodation request, please email pvwomensmarch at gmail dot com.


The march route is approximately 3/4 of a mile, from Northgate Center to City Hall.

Please feel free to join us at any point on the march route!


The rally is scheduled to begin at 1:00 pm at City Hall. We have a dynamic group of speakers and performers so please join in!

There will be ASL interpreters and we ask that those needing interpretation come to the front of the steps so they have the clearest view. If you need help, please ask a volunteer.

After the rally, if you need assistance returning to your vehicle, please make sure you reach out to a volunteer.


Public restrooms are available in Union Station, a few blocks away from the march starting point, and at City Hall during the rally and activist fair. If you need an accessible restroom at Northgate Center (the starting point), please check in with a PVWM volunteer.

Questions, comments, concerns: reach out to us at pvwomensmarch at gmail dot com.

Thank you!
