Timeline for Women's March - O'ahu: Women's Wave
Details as we get closer to the event
The Women’s March - O’ahu will begin on Saturday, January 19, 2019, at 10:00 am on the grounds of the Hawai‘i State Capitol.
Staging for the March on O’ahu will begin at 9:30 am on the Ewa lawn of the State Capitol.
The March route will start on the Ewa grounds of the 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.
Following the March, individuals and groups will rally at the State Capitol to raise our voices in support of policies, programs and laws that empower women, strengthen communities and protect our environment. A program featuring advocates, local leaders, artists and others is being organized and will be announced in the coming weeks.
All groups and individuals--regardless of gender or gender identity--who believe that women’s rights are human rights, that empowering women strengthens our communities are invited to march and rally with us.
On January 21, 2017, marchers on O’ahu joined in largest peaceful protest, our planet has ever seen, with those marching in Washington, D.C. and in communities across our nation and across the globe to stand up for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families. We stand together in solidarity with our partners and children-- recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are our strength.
The rhetoric of the 2016 election cycle insulted, demonized and threatened many of us--Native people, immigrants of all statuses, Muslims and those of diverse religious faiths, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, survivors of sexual assault and survivors of domestic violence. We are confronted with the question of how to move forward in the face of national and international concern and fear.
In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in solidarity to show presence in numbers too great to ignore, to elevate and advance issues that are important to women, families, children, and communities.
The Women’s March - O’ahu will send a bold message to local and national elected leaders, and to the world that women’s rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.
We support the advocacy and resistance movements that reflect our multiple and intersecting identities. This march is one step towards unifying our communities, grounded in new relationships, to create change and build our communities from the grassroots level up. We will not rest until women have parity and equity at all levels in society. We work peacefully while recognizing that there is no true peace without justice and equity for all.
