You’re Invited: March with WLP in Philadelphia on Saturday

The 2018 Women’s March on Philadelphia is taking place this Saturday, January 20.

Organizers expect 60,000 people to show up and march. The temperature is expected to be approximately 50 degrees. The program will be shorter this year, but otherwise the same as last year: attendees will meet up near Logan Square, and then march down the Ben Franklin Parkway toward the Philadelphia Museum of Art, where a stage will be set up for speakers and performers.

We will be marching, and invite you to join us!

People marching with WLP will meet up by 10:45AM at Sister Cities Park. We’ll have a WLP sign so you can find us in the crowd.

Here is the schedule:

  • 10:30am: People begin to gather near Logan Circle/Aviator Park
  • 10:35am: WLP meet-up at Sister Cities Park!
  • 11am: Drum Like a Lady kicks off the march
  • 11AM – Noon: Marching toward Eakins Oval
  • Noon: Rally near the steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art

The rally is expected to last two to three hours.

For more details, read our recent Q&A with march organizer Emily Cooper Morse.
