AWARE, Inc. is proud to host the Women’s March on Juneau on Jan 21st, an all inclusive event where we can network with each other and show our strength through unity. We are currently working on lining up organizations and people who would like to set up booths after the march in the JACC to engage in dialogue around intersectional women’s issues.

Our current plan for the day:

  • 9am- Meet at the steps of the Capitol for a short rally.
  • 10am- Meet at the JACC For a live streaming of the happenings at the DC rally as well as local conversations with women’s organizations with more information for how to get involved and help enact change at a local level.
  • 1pm- Clean up!

If you are interested in helping please contact Becca at beccag@awareak.org

We are especially looking for help with set up, clean up, and networking with women’s organizations across all cultural and religious spheres!

Marchers in Juneau will be meeting at the Juneau Arts and Culture Center, located at 350 Whittier St. We will gather at 8:30am to make signs, etc. and then march to the capitol, 120 W 4th St, by 9am to have a short speaker (TBA) and then back to the JACC for a rally with live streaming from washington and tables from different women’s organizations around town that will allow people to engage in intersectional conversations around many different women’s issues that interest them!

If you would like to help out please email Rebecca  Gaguine at beccag@awareak.org. She works with the local women’s shelter, AWARE, Inc. Aiding Women in Abuse and Rape Emergencies, they are helping to sponsor the movement.
