Fourth annual Women’s March held in Castleton, Saturday

Saturday, Jan. 18 at 12 p.m.—CASTLETON—Women have a chance to finish what they started three years ago and are going to do so in Southern Vermont! The 4th annual Women’s March Vermont will take place on Saturday, Jan. 18 from 12-3 p.m., at Castleton University’s Casella Theater, 45 Alumni Drive in Castleton, in solidarity with hundreds of sister events taking place throughout the country for an afternoon of hope, solidarity and action.

This year, Rep. Summer Lee will be welcomed as keynote speaker. A rising progressive star, Rep. Lee is the first black woman from western Pennsylvania to be elected to the Pennsylvania General Assembly.

Prior to taking office, Lee was a dedicated organizer, activist and advocate for social justice in her local community.

Her legislative priorities include criminal justice reform; education, health care and energy policy reforms; a progressive tax structure for Pennsylvania and a $15 minimum wage for all workers.

At this year’s Vermont local event, new and seasoned activists will engage directly with speakers and participate in action on the spot.

There will also be a professional live-stream that will allow for remote participation and engagement.
