Women's March Minnesota presents: Hear Our Voice.
Frequently Asked Questions
More information will be posted as it becomes available.
How much does it cost?
The event was created to ensure that the ability to purchase a ticket was not a barrier to participating. There are a variety of prices, including free!
Why aren't we doing a March in Minnesota?
It is incumbent on the Women’s March state chapters to host an event that meets the needs of their state. From the Governors race, to two U.S. Senator races, to multiple U.S. House of Representatives seats we need to flip or hold on to, to all of the state-level races and so much more, 2018 is shaping up to be a political year to remember. In Minnesota, we need to move from a moment to a movement to harness our collective power as we go into a tide shifting election year in 2018. Beyond politics, we are working to build communities to create transformative change around each of the Women’s March Unity Principals; Ending Violence, Reproductive Rights, LGBTQIA Rights, Worker’s Rights, Civil Rights, Rights for People with Disabilities, Immigrant Rights and Environmental Justice.
How can I get involved?
Great question! We are looking for volunteers to help us shape what the Women’s March movement looks like for Minnesota! You can find a list of leader and volunteer opportunities here.
Is Women's March doing a March in D.C.?
The national Women’s March is not doing a march, the majority of states are not either. A few are marching, some are hosting rallies, others are holding voter registration drives.
What's the purpose of an event in January again?
January 21, 2018 marks the one year anniversary of the birth of the Women's March movement. Not only will we celebrate that moment, but we'll ask you to commit your time, your voice, your feet, and your money to making real change as we move into the 2018 elections. It is time to renew the momentum of the march and solidify the movement.
Why is this event ticketed, when last year anyone could come?
Due to the unique nature of living in Minnesota, when January could be -10, and in a year the state is hosting the SuperBowl and the SuperBowl Committee rents out ALL the locations in the Twin Cities that hold more than 3,000 people, we are excited to present this important event inviting YOU to commit to take your activism from Marching to Moving. We are planning for all options to make this event accessible to all, including scholarship opportunities.
Who will be performing?
We are welcoming back many of those who performed at the march last year. This will keep the energy of the evening alive and uplifting. Current confirmed artists include: Maria Isa, K. Raydio and Soul Beautiful.
Who will be speaking?
As with last year, we are confident we’ll have several fierce local, feminist leaders to share energizing messages on important topics.
