Event Description

On Saturday, January 21, 2017, we will unite at the Trenton War Memorial in Trenton, New Jersey at 10 a.m.to rally in solidarity with marchers in Washington, DC at the Women’s March on Washington and at the over 170 sister marches being held across the United States and the world.

In New Jersey, at our peaceful march, we will unite and empower one another to use our collective, diverse voices to send a clear message that we expect our civil and human rights to be upheld and protected. We will remind those in government that they report to us and that true power is retained by the people.

Women United, Together We Rise

Women of New Jersey will rise united. Though we are diverse in so many ways, we will stand together peacefully with our families and our friends, united in our belief that the strength of our country depends on the strength of women.

We rise together because we affirm the autonomy of women – all of us entitled to control our own bodies.

We rise united because we affirm the dignity of women – all of us deserving of equitable concern, respect, and protection from abuse and violence.

We rise together to advance racial justice and to fight discrimination based on our skin color, ethnicity, gender,religion, orientation, differing ability, or citizenship – all of us safe and free from discrimination and bigotry.

We rise united to dismantle the barriers that keep too many people from healthcare, homes they can afford, and the public education on which democracy depends – all of us committed to moving toward a better tomorrow.

We rise together to end police violence and mass incarceration - all of us standing together to fight against the inequality our sisters and brothers face everyday.

We rise united for urgent action on climate change - all of us recognizing that none of these rights matter if we do not have clean water, clean air, and a habitable earth to leave our descendents.

From our diversity comes one message: we stand to protect women’s civil and human rights. Women United, Together We Rise!

Please help us by sharing this event with every person you know, from any and every background, that may be interested. Our march, an event built on the cornerstones of inclusivity, diversity, peace and acceptance, welcomes all women, of every race, ethnicity, religion, orientation, ability, immigration status, socioeconomic background, and age, as well as their supporters. The greater our numbers, the greater our impact.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: First stop on January 21st: Patriot's Theater

The WMONJ is pleased to announce that our event will begin with a program of engaging and dynamic speakers at Patriots Theater located at the Trenton War Memorial.

Following the speaking program, we will march approximately a half of a mile to the steps of the State House, where we take a People's Pledge together and hear a call-to-action.

All marchers should plan to meet at the theater at the War Memorial. The address is 1 Memorial Drive in Trenton. The start time is 10:00 a.m. Due to the large volume of participants and capacity of the theater, we highly recommend arriving as early.

Why Purple?

We invite march participants to wear the color purple on January 21st.

Why purple?

Purple has a history as a symbol of dignity and unity. It was one of a trio of colors chosen by the suffragists in both England and America. Suffragette Emmeline Pethick-Lawrence, editor of the weekly newspaper, Votes for Women, once wrote, "Purple as everyone knows is the royal colour, it stands for the royal blood that flows in the veins of every suffragette, the instinct of freedom and dignity." More recently, Hillary Clinton punctuated her black pantsuit with a purple satin shirt and lapels as she delivered her concession speech on November 9th - a symbol of unity, bipartisanship, and togetherness after such a divisive election season.

On January 21st, we unite and stand in solidarity with not only the individuals at the Women's March on Washington, but with other satellite women's marches across the United States. To the Women's March on New Jersey, the color purple represents the blending of the blue states with the red states, showing that no matter what state we live in or which political party we belong to, we are all one America. No one person outweighs another, no one issue or value is more important than another - a cornerstone of our march. We are one America and not the color of our state or the color of our party. On January 21st, we are all purple. In the spirit of unity, we ask that you try to incorporate something purple in your march attire (hat, gloves, scarf, jackets and coats, socks, bracelet, necklace, shoes, nail polish, headband, earrings, etc.) if possible.

The Speaking Program

The Women's March on New Jersey is proud to announce to following keynote speakers at our event:

Ms. Edith Savage-Jennings: Legendary NJ Civil Rights icon Edith Savage-Jennings needs no introduction but she gets one anyway for her

boundless contributions to a better, fairer America. Edith has been the guest to the White House under every President of the United States

since Franklin Roosevelt. At age ten, she met First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt when she was selected to hand the First Lady flowers on behalf of

the NJ State Federation of Colored Women's Clubs. Although told not to speak, Savage thanked Mrs. Roosevelt which led to the two becoming

pen pals for the remainder of Mrs. Roosevelt's life. At twelve years old Edith joined the National Association for the Advancement of Colored

People (NAACP.) At only 13 years old Edith helped to integrate the Capital Theater in Trenton, New Jersey when she refused to sit in the

balcony which was the designated seating area for blacks. Her first job was in the sheriff's office where she continued to speak out against

discrimination. Edith Savage-Jennings has received over 100 awards and honors for her work in Civil Rights. In 2016 she was inducted into

the New Jersey Women's Hall of Fame. The city of Trenton proclaimed February 19, 2016 Edith Savage-Jennings Day.


Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman: Congresswoman Bonnie Watson Coleman, a long-time and influential advocate for the people of

New Jersey, is currently serving in the US Congress. Prior to her history-making election victory, Watson Coleman served in the NJ General

Assembly. The daughter of legendary state legislator John S. Watson, Watson Coleman has continued a family legacy of public service

fighting for women, economic and socially disadvantaged populations, and other vulnerable groups in our society. Watson Coleman

shattered racial and gender barriers to become the first African American woman to serve as Majority Leader of the NJ General Assembly,

and the first African American woman to serve as the Chair of the NJ Democratic State Committee. Her election to the Congress makes her

the first African American woman to represent NJ in Congress.


Ms. Luanne Peterpaul: Luanne Peterpaul is chairman of Garden State Equality's Political Action Fund which mobilizes political action for

NJ's LGBT community and their families. A Seton Hall Law grad and practicing attorney in Long Branch, Luanne has played an integral roll

in every single piece of piece of pro-LGBT legislation to come out of NJ for the past dozen years.


Dr. Dalia F. Fahmy: Dr Dalia F. Fahmy is assistant professor of political science at Long Island University at Brooklyn. She received her B.A.

from New York University in politics and Middle Eastern studies, minoring in peace and global policy studies. Dr. Fahmy completed an M.A.

comparative politics. Her latest book is called "Egypt and the Contradictions of Liberalism: Illiberal Intelligentsia and the Future of Egyptian

Democracy." Dr. Fahmy is also a political analyst & senior fellow at the Center for Global Policy.


Congressman Donald Norcross: Congressman Donald Norcross represents New Jersey’s First Congressional District, which includes 52

towns throughout Camden, Gloucester, and Burlington Counties. He led the charge to increase New Jersey’s minimum wage. Donald worked

with Rowan and Rutgers Universities to form partnerships with our local county colleges to make earning a degree more affordable for local

students. He also created pipelines for local employers to hire talent from vocational and technical schools, and has championed programs to

expand and diversify the workforce through the recruitment and hiring of women and minorities.


Ms. Diana Mejia: Diana Mejia is co-founder of Wind of Spirit, a Morristown, NJ-based immigrant resource center working to organize and

empower the community for social change. Their goal: to achieve a world of solidarity, justice and peace. Operating under the righteous

principle that no human being is inherently illegal, Diana and her organization represent a path to a future of mercy, tolerance, forgiveness,

and compassion. Diana played a critical lobbying roll in passing the NJDRWM Act ending the discriminatory practice of charging New Jersey's

undocumented immigrant youth exorbitant out-of-state tuition rates.


Assemblywoman Pamela Lampitt: Assemblywoman Pamela Lampitt has represented NJ’s 6th Legislatives district since 2006. She currently

serves as the Chairwoman of the Assembly Women and Children Committee at the vanguard of key policyissues affecting NJ's middle-class

legislation to enact pay equity in New Jersey. Assemblywoman Lampitt also authored New Jersey's law preventing workplace discrimination

against pregnant women. Throughout her leadership of the Women and Children Committee, the Committee has covered topics including:

Safety and Security

The first step in ensuring safety was obtaining our necessary permits. The purpose of the permits is not only to secure a location, but to ensure all city agencies, including the police, are involved in the planning process. Security is a top priority. All proper security measures have been discussed and put in place in coordination with the police and other city agencies.

While marching is a fundamental right protected under the United States Constitution, the safety and security of the attendees and organizers is of the utmost importance. We are working very closely with both the New Jersey State Police and the Trenton Police Department to ensure the event is as safe as possible and everyone is well protected. Members of the State Police and Trenton Police Department, both identifiable and unidentifiable, will be there to protect us and our right to free speech and the freedom of assembly, as such, we ask that you respect and obey any lawful requests made by the NJSP and TPD.

Here are some tips to help make this march as safe and secure as possible for all of our participants:

-Bring your cell phone. Be sure the phone is fully charged. If an emergency arises, please dial 911 right away.

-Do not bring backpacks or large bags. All bags, including purses, are subject to search at any time. Carry only absolute necessities. The event will last approximately three hours from start to finish. Large crowds are expected and, inside the theater, participants will be seated in close proximity to one another. Larger items, like strollers, will not be permitted into the theater. Strollers, are, of course, welcome at our outdoor venues. Please leave any unnecessary belongings either in your vehicle or on the bus. Verify with bus operators beforehand if items will be secure inside the bus, if they are left there.

-Bring signs. Be sure those signs are made only of cardboard or paper and that no wooden or metal sticks are attached. They must be handheld.

-Be aware of your surroundings. If something seems odd or suspicious, or someone is being disruptive or combative, tell an identifiable police officer nearby or a March volunteer. All March volunteers will be wearing buttons with our logo and slogan so they can be identified.

-Tell someone where you are going to be. If possible, come to our event with a friend. We are all in this together, so please take care of yourself and others marching around you.

-Bundle up in the event that temperatures dip low and/or there is snow in the forecast. Although the first portion of the March is at an indoor location, we will be outdoors, marching for a half of a mile and then gathering outdoors at the steps of the State House. Watch weather forecasts and dress appropriately.

This is a peaceful march/rally. All attendees must understand that your actions can affect the safety of your fellow attendees. We urge all attendees to respect and take care of yourself and those around you. Anyone that acts in such a way that causes harm to another human being, breaks the law, and/or is disruptive to the peaceful events taking place will be removed immediately by law enforcement. Any damage done to public or private property in the city of Trenton will result in a participant's prompt removal. All legal fees and other costs associated with any charges stemming from a participant's actions and/or participation in the march are the sole responsibility of the participant. All marchers/attendees participate at her/his own risk.

By participating in the Women's March of New Jersey, you agree that The Women's March On New Jersey, its organizers, supporters and sponsors are not responsible for any and all claims for personal injury, property damage, or death that may result from your participation in the March.

Who is planning and supporting this event?

The Women's March on New Jersey was the idea of Elizabeth Meyer. Elizabeth is a New Jersey native who grew up in Wayne and resided in Bergen County. She now lives in Central New Jersey with her husband, Jamie, and two young daughters. She graduated from William Paterson University in 2000 with a B.A. in Communication, a minor in political science, and a New Jersey teaching certificate. She worked for four years in the radio industry in the New York and New Jersey markets as a producer, news anchor and reporter, and on-air personality and worked as a campaign coordinator at an incumbent Congressman's headquarters in New Jersey. Elizabeth has twelve years experience as a middle school educator in both urban and suburban districts, teaching history, reading, writing, photography, theater, and character education. Her passion for helping children continues as her own daughters inspire her to procure and protect their rights for the future.

In keeping with the mission of the Women's March on Washington, the WMONJ brings together women of all races, ethnicities, orientations, religions, abilities, socioeconomic backgrounds, citizenship statuses, and ages. It is with that in mind that Elizabeth has reached out to a myriad of diverse organizations and individuals to assist with the planning of this event.

The WMONJ is committed to diversifying its team of organizers and supporters to represent all the women in attendance at the march.

FAQs

WHAT DO I WEAR? This is an outdoor event taking place near the end of January. It encompasses a march and a rally at the steps of the State House. When it comes to attire, please dress appropriately for the weather. It will be a chilly day, so wear multiple layers and comfortable shoes or boots along with accessories such as hats, scarves, and gloves. Keep in mind that in order to show our unity and togetherness, we hope that you all will be able to wear something PURPLE.

WHAT DO I BRING? The event is scheduled to take place over a period of a few hours. Please bring enough water along with any medications you may need. We ask that you have a "carry in, carry out" policy, being sure to take any trash with you as you leave or find a trash receptacle to deposit it in. It is important to be respectful of both public and private property in the city of Trenton.

Bring any signs to support any/all women's rights, especially those that hold personal significance for you. Be creative. Keep in mind that, according to the rules and regulations for demonstrations at the State House, signs, banners, posters, and placards "must be made solely of paper or cardboard and supported by the person, not by or framed by wood, metal, or any other material of a firm nature. Nor shall they be self-supporting, affixed, or lean against a building adjacent to the State Capitol Complex grounds." Please be sure to be respectful of the city's request. The reasoning is that paper and cardboard are safer materials than wood and metal.

ARE THERE ANY SLOGANS FOR THE WOMEN'S MARCH ON NEW JERSEY? "Women United, Together We Rise" is the official slogan of the WMONJ.

WHY IS THERE NO MENTION OF PRESIDENT-ELECT DONALD TRUMP IN YOUR MISSION STATEMENT? This March is an affirmative, peaceful gathering open and safe for women, their allies, and their children. That insight originates from the National March and has been widely accepted by over 150 marches taking place on the same day across the country and the world. We want this to be an affirmative March FOR all women's rights, including all the hopes mentioned in our mission statement above. While these issues are being threatened by the President-Elect, we do not want a negative connotation to the March. This march is not a protest; it is a rally in solidarity with marchers across our nation and world. It is about placing aside our differences, joining together, and raising our voices in strength and pride. It is about us - the women and their supporters who will gather on January 21st -, not about one man.

WHERE WILL WE BE MARCHING? We will begin at the War Memorial and, after a few turns, will end at the steps of the State House. It will be approximately a half mile.

HAVE THE NECESSARY PERMITS BEEN ACQUIRED? There are two permits required for our event. The first is for use of the State House grounds. It has been submitted and approved by the New Jersey State Police. The second permit is necessary for the march portion of our event. All necessary paperwork has been submitted to the Trenton Police Department and approved. We are working closely with both the New Jersey State Police and the Trenton Police Department to insure this event is safe and legal.

ARE TICKETS NECESSARY FOR THE MARCH? No, tickets are not necessary. EventBrite registration is for headcount purposes only to assist with our planning. EventBrite tickets are not necessary for admission nor do they guarantee admission. Seating at Patriots Theater will begin at 9:00 a.m. Please plan on arriving early due to the large crowds anticipated. The theater has a limited capacity. Plans are in place in the event of overflow. From the theater, we will march a half mile to the State House. Both are outdoors venues so capacity is not limited.

HOW WILL I KNOW WHERE TO SIT IN THE THEATER? March organizers will be there to show participants to their seats. A section of seating will be reserved for those of differing abilities. The theater's capacity is 1,833. There is a plan in place to handle overflow in the event the number of participants exceeds the theater's capacity.

ARE ACCOMMODATIONS IN PLACE FOR THOSE WHO MAY NEED THEM? Yes. In the spirit of our March, the organizers want to be sure our event is as inclusive as possible. There are designated handicap parking areas. All venues will be accessible to everyone, including Patriot's Theater and the outdoor location at the State House. In addition, there will be sections of reserved seating at both the theater and at the steps of the State House for those of differing abilities. An ASL interpreter will at the podium during all speeches.

WHAT HAPPENS IF IT SNOWS? In the event the march is cancelled, any cancellation notice will be posted on this website, our WMONJ Facebook page and Facebook event page, the WMONJ Eventbrite page, as well as on our Twitter and Instagram accounts as soon as the decision is made (please see Contact Information listed below). Cancellation will be determined as soon as possible since we know many may be travelling long distances. Please be certain you have access to any/all of these social media venues and sign up as followers or register with these sites where applicable. Connect with others who are traveling to the march and communicate with one another. If you do not see any cancellation notices on our web outlets, the event is on. Safety is our utmost concern. Regardless of the weather conditions, if you feel that travelling to the march poses any danger to yourself, please remain safely at home. We know you will be with us in spirit!

WILL THERE BE RESTROOM FACILITIES? Yes, attendees will have access to restrooms at both the War Memorial and on the State House grounds.

Food and drinks are also prohibited inside Patriots Theater. Keep snacks for the march portion of the event or the rally at the State House steps. ALL TRASH MUST BE DISPOSED OF PROPERLY. March volunteers are responsible for all clean up and, more importantly, we want be respectful to the city that is hosting our event. When in doubt, carry in, carry out!

CAN MEN AND CHILDREN PARTICIPATE TOO? Of course. Anyone who is a supporter of women's rights is welcome. We encourage men to attend. Many of the issues we are concerned about cross sex and gender lines.

Bringing children is up to you. It will be an exciting day, but there will be large crowds, cold weather and possibly snow. In January, temperatures can dip close to or below freezing in Trenton. Watch the forecast and be sure everyone in your group is bundled up, especially children. Participants in the theater will be seated within close proximity to one another. That portion will last about an hour and fifteen minutes, not including the time it takes for participants to be seated. Childcare will not be provided, so please plan accordingly. Strollers are not permitted inside the theater, but are welcomed everywhere else.

ARE PRESS PASSES BEING ISSUED? Press passes are not being issued, however, press credentials are required to access any press areas designated at the event.
