DESCRIPTION: August 26, 2020 marks the 100th Anniversary of the ratification of the19th Amendment to the United States Constitution, granting women the right to vote. As the group Indivisible Suffragists explains, ninety-seven years after gaining the right to vote, women are faced with the most openly misogynist, regressive, bigoted, corrupt and dangerous administration in United States history. As Heather Heyer stated on Facebook before she was martyred by a white supremacist in Charlottesville, Virginia, “If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention.” This year’s march is dedicated in memory of Heather, and all victims of bigotry and oppression. We need to show Congress that there is broad resistance to Trump’s agenda. Join us. The predominate voting demographic in the United States currently happens to be women. The date of August 26th was purposefully chosen for the 1st Annual INDIVISIBLE MARCH to rally the voting base for future elections. Women in the United States were granted the right to vote on August 26, 1920, when the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution was certified as law. Thus in 1971, August 26th became designated as «Women's Equality Day» in America. This August Recess, we intend to acknowledge the 97th Anniversary of the 19th Amendment in 2017 and beyond. We will be Crowd Canvassing (https://facebook.com/LATacoFestival) beforehand to promote the March and will continue Crowd Canvassing (https://facebook.com/DTLAProudOrg/) after the March. Please invite the public to participate with the Indivisible Movement and help us to organize this historic August Recess Event in a safe, legal and peaceful manner to rally the voting base, uplifting ALL Indivisible Groups across the United States, in solidarity of equality as we commemorate the countdown to the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment in 2020.

NOTE: It is imperative that all Marchers participating bring enough water as the Indivisible March has no official sponsorship. Prepare for the heat with lightweight clothing and hats (i.e. Suffragist White, Summer Colors, etc.). We intend to provide Legal Observers and volunteers with Marshal Training, however if applicable, we ask that ALL Marchers avoid conversation with any Trump Supporters to prevent conflict. LAPD may assist with closing First Street due to crowd size previous to march. The Biltmore, at end of route, is only accepting registered guests and will turn away any requests made buy Marchers to access facilities who are unable to provide hotel key. Marchers are encouraged to attend the DTLA Proud Festival and is advised to pre-purchase and provide copy of $5 pass (10 ticket limit per customer) to access the event. Remaining Marchers will be asked to disperse by both Hosts and LAPD at the end of the Indivisible March where the METRO is located.
