WHEN: Saturday, Jan. 21, 2017; meeting at 9:30 a.m., march starts at 10:00 a.m.
WHERE: Ewa lawn of the Hawaii State Capitol
AAUW Hawaii is a partner for the Women’s March on Washington DC on Oahu. Please join us in this historic event to show your support for women’s rights.
We will meet at the corner of the decorative pool on the Ewa (western) side of the lawn. See the attached map, which shows the meeting spot at the pool corner closest to Iolani Palace and Richards Street. Please contact Susan Wurtzburg if you plan on attending.
The march will start in the Ewa grounds of the Hawai’i State Capitol along Richards Street, left on to South King Street, left up Alapai Street, left onto South Beretania Street, and ending in the Capitol Rotunda. The route will be less than 2 miles. For those that cannot walk the entire route anyone can leave the route at the entrance of Iolani Palace or Punchbowl St. and go back to the Hawai‘i State Capitol for the Rally.
This event is free and to open to everyone who supports women’s rights. Inform your friends, family and co-workers who are interested in these issues about the march and invite them to attend! Representative Bella Au Belatti is bringing her children, and encourages everyone to involve their children. (There will be security for the marchers.)
There are several pay lots in the downtown area and some street parking. We are working to get state and city lots opened for the Women’s March – Oahu but assume that all lots will be crowded. We expect a minimum of 4,000 people attending, and there has been much enthusiasm for the event. Please car pool, or use public transportation.
During the march and rally, please post pictures to AAUW Hawaii’s Facebook page, and our Facebook page. Please tag us on Instagram (AAUWHonolulu). Also, please share pictures on your own Facebook page, and encourage participation in AAUW events.
Shirts are available but probably will not be delivered in time for the march.
