6 PM: Candlelight Vigil and launch of a new movement called A Trillion Acts of Love.

Tucsonans to Remember Historic Women’s March with Candlelight Vigil and “A Trillion Acts of Love”

Last year an impassioned group of Tucsonans organized a sister march to the Women’s March on Washington. With a typical Tucson twist, they added a Solidarity Rally. On January 21, 2017 between Armory Park and the Joel Valdez Library, a record 15,000 Southern Arizonans attended, marching peacefully in support of human rights, women’s rights and diversity.

This year, the area’s sister Women’s March will take place in Casa Grande, AZ on January 20, 2018. In Tucson, three of the 2017 Women’s March planning team will host a Candlelight Vigil on January 20, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. at Armory Park (220 S. 5th Avenue) and launch a new movement called A Trillion Acts of Love. “We stand together to affirm our shared humanity and pronounce our continued message of resistance to plutocracy, and to acknowledge that, though it appears our democracy is dying, the light of hope remains within us,” says Sheli Weis, writer, artist and activist against hate. “A Trillion Acts of Love is an effort to spread kindness across Tucson, and beyond! We’re asking everyone to bring a candle and an act of love they will commit in 2018--something to tighten the net of support between people. This is a radical act of self-determination to bring power back into our own hands. We must subvert the spread of hatred and separation across our country with love and compassion for our neighbor.” And that’s not all. In a bold move, the team decided to give Tucsonans the opportunity to start immediately with an Act of Love by partnering with the Armory Park Senior Center. “The vigil is right outside their door, so we asked what they needed, and decided to wrap it all up together. It’s a perfect opportunity to help our citizens in need,” said Pam Bickell, who was an editor for the previous march. Peter Romano of Handprint-Images stepped forward and offered to photograph each person holding a sign declaring their Act of Love, to be uploaded to the Women’s March Facebook page for any donation, from “one cent to as big as your heart,” with much of the proceeds going directly to the Senior Center. He will even print a souvenir photo for each participant for a $5 fee with 50% going directly to the Center. The seniors are possibly planning to decorate the photo booth and the staff is just stunned at this rapid turn of events. An official Anthem has been adopted and original art has been designed. The emerging female artist Maya Burns’ song, “Time to Take Action” is available for download on YouTube and the artwork created by Donna Sutton, who designed last year’s fundraiser T-shirts will be featured prominently in relation to the Trillion Acts of Love movement. For details go to www.facebook.com/WomensMarchOnWashingtonTucson. Donation list of items needed by the seniors, drop off times and location are listed below. Updated information will be released in an additional press release next week as the event progresses.

Where: Armory Park (220 S. 5th Avenue)

Phoenix 10AM -Women's March to the Polls

The Women who brought you The Women's March on Washington: Phoenix are coming back together to organize a reunion march in 2018.
This year has been a whirlwind of highs and lows. The Women's March on Washington was the largest single-day protest in written history, and our city of Phoenix drew a crowd of 20,000 women and allies, and helped to set the stage for an impassioned resistance to an administration with an agenda that does not reflect the values of the American people.
Since this time, women across America have shared their stories and stood up against their abusers with the rise of the #MeToo movement. Women of color in Alabama were able to secure the senate seat for Doug Jones in the special election that shook a historically red state to its core and showed what can be accomplished when a community works together to bring forward the vote that can change a nation. In that same spirit, we are proud to host a march and rally to call for action and bring the progressive voice and vote to Arizona.
We marched to resist, and now we march to rise. We seek to bring voter registration to the communities most affected by the oppressive policies of the Trump administration. We seek to give a platform to the progressive women who seek office in our communities, and to encourage women, and especially women of color, to seek office and roles of leadership in Arizona.
2018 is our time to rise up, to register new voters with the ambition of those whose futures depend on it, knowing that these are truly the stakes we face. Join us in the fight to bring the progressive voice and VOTE to Arizona.
