Will there be a march in Northampton this year?
The Pioneer Valley Women’s march, which started in Northampton and has been held in Northampton since 2017, has made a commitment to host the annual Women’s March in a different city or town in the Pioneer Valley each year to build unity across communities. This year’s march will be in Springfield!
What are the specific demands of the 2020 Pioneer Valley Women’s March?
Our theme for 2020 is “Unity Across Communities to Save Our World.” You can read about our call to action and specific demands here.
What should I bring?
Wear comfortable shoes (the route is .7 mi) and dress in warm layers! We encourage you to bring a sign, but you can just bring yourself.
What is the plan in case of snow/inclement weather?
Unless there is a serious snow emergency we will be continuing with the march and rally as planned. If there is a snow emergency and we need to cancel any part of the day’s program, we will post a change of plans on the website and the Facebook event.
Is the Pioneer Valley Women’s March connected to the National Women’s March?
The Pioneer Valley Women’s March was inspired by the national march in 2017 and is classified as a “sister march” but it is completely lead and organized by local activists and volunteers.
Will there be designated restrooms?
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.
Will someone be registering voters at the March?
Representatives from the League of Women Voters will be present at the activist fair to assist with voter registration and information about new Automatic Voter Registration in Massachusetts. Check your voter registration and/or register to vote online here!
