Women’s March II planned for Saturday

By Reader Staff

One year after the historic 2016 Women’s March, the community is gathering to commemorate its anniversary.

The North Idaho Women’s March II, a non-partisan event that aims to harness the power of women in the community to create positive social change, and encourage women to run for political office, begins at noon Saturday, Jan. 20, at Sandpoint Middle School, 310 N. Division St. Rally keynote speaker State Rep. Paulette Jordan has publicly announced her decision to run for governor. There will be opportunities for women and men to take action on issues of education, health care and human rights. The march follows the rally. Bring friends, bring signs … and yes, men are included! Sponsored by the non-partisan North Idaho Women’s March Committee. For more information, e-mail [email protected]

While we have you ...

... if you appreciate that access to the news, opinion, humor, entertainment and cultural reporting in the Sandpoint Reader is freely available in our print newspaper as well as here on our website, we have a favor to ask. The Reader is locally owned and free of the large corporate, big-money influence that affects so much of the media today. We're supported entirely by our valued advertisers and readers. We're committed to continued free access to our paper and our website here with NO PAYWALL - period. But of course, it does cost money to produce the Reader. If you're a reader who appreciates the value of an independent, local news source, we hope you'll consider a voluntary contribution. You can help support the Reader for as little as $1.
