September 22, 2016 Racial Justice Coalition
From the Facebook event information page:
Womxn (conventionally known as ‘women’) are silenced, womxn are erased, womxn are ignored, womxn are abused, womxn are victimized. Moreover womxn of color are continuously subjected to silence, erasure, violence and invisibility. Including the aforementioned we are constantly treated as objects, threats, even aggressors while being demonized and scapegoated.
We are CALLING ALL WOMXN to join the Bellingham Racial Justice Coalition for a womxn of color led march including EVERY womxn (meaning all womxn-identified welcomed) on Saturday, October 1st at 8:30 a.m., beginning in the Civic Field parking lot. Join us in commemorating the lives of the womxn murdered by law enforcement and join us in recognizing our own lives: that we live free, with the peace we create for ourselves. We will march from Civic Field beginning at 8:30 a.m. This is an all womxn’s march. Womxn; all shapes, sizes, abilities, backgrounds, are welcomed to march and speak out against these accusations and mistruths with us. We are survivors, we are life-givers, we are healers, we are the very power we are taught we don’t have.
