The Island Women’s March invites all islands to participate in a sidewalk march on Jan. 20 in Friday Harbor. Participants will meet at the Friday Harbor Courthouse on First Street, next to the American Legion. Staging time will be at noon and the march will start at 12:30 p.m.

The Saturday ferry schedule leaves Lopez at 10:15 a.m., Shaw at 10:35 a.m., Orcas at 10:50 a.m. arriving in Friday Harbor at 11:30 a.m. Return schedule leaves Friday Harbor at 2:50 p.m., arriving at Orcas at 3:35 p.m., Shaw at 3:50 p.m., and Lopez at 4:20 p.m.

All islanders are invited to take part in our protest against the current administration. This is a family and pet-friendly sidewalk parade one mile long. It is an easy walk.

Bring signs and passion and join in demonstrating that the current administration’s policies are not America’s policies.

Participants will be marching to engage and empower all people to support human rights, women’s rights, voting rights, civil rights, social justice, racial equality, environmental rights, disability rights, LGBT rights, reproductive rights, indigenous people’s rights, immigration rights, health rights, veterans rights and liberty and justice for all.
