Honoring Indigenous Women Leading The Women’s March
January 21, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
It’s a time like no other!
The time is now!
**We will meet at the…
Arizona State Capitol building on the south lawn @ 9:40 AM!**
**The March will start at the Capitol and will look back to the Capitol – 2 miles and there will be a shorten route**
Join the Honoring Indigenous Women group of the peoples during the Women’s March in Phoenix. Let’s encourage and empower the communities. It’s important and a serious time to spread the awareness of the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women crisis. #MMIW
84% of Native American women experience violence in their lifetime. But outside of Indian Country, few people are aware of this epidemic. It’s time to raise awareness and show that these women are not invisible. #Notinvisible
We are here to honor and remember our women, our sisters and our youth who have been stolen from us. We will be a voice for them. #Stolensisters
We stand against the images that perpetuates a belief that Indigenous Women are free to be characterized, exotified, and sexualized. #Notyourcostume
We stand to stop the dehumanization. #Notyourmascot
We recognize that these issues also connect to the struggle of the continued assaults and desecration on Mother Earth. #Metoo
Represent your participation by wearing RED (traditional/ regalia). Please, donate one-sided of your earring to be added to an art piece. We welcome Indigenous peoples who sharr songs and drum in honor of the Indigenous Women.
