March with us on Friday & Saturday!

Here’s everything you need to know about IATX at the marches this weekend. Boost the signal — share in your district groups and with your friends!

ONE RESISTANCE INAUGURATION PROTEST MARCH

IndivisibleATX will be joining many other organizations and individuals for a peaceful march on the State Capitol to protest Donald Trump’s politics of fear and hate and to rally for civil rights, immigrants’ rights, reproductive rights, our environment, good jobs, as well as justice and safety in all of our communities. The marchers will gather at Auditorium Shores and march up Congress Ave. to the State Capitol.

WHEN: Friday, January 20, 5 p.m.

WHERE TO MEET:

IndivisibleATX members will gather in front of the box office at the Long Center at 5 p.m., then walk together across the street to Auditorium Shores where we will join the other marchers. Look for signs that say #RESIST and#INDIVISIBLEATX.

WHAT TO WEAR:

  • Good shoes!
  • Layers — this is Texas, so who knows how warm/cool it will be
  • Many will be wearing Indivisible ATX/#RESIST  t-shirts. You can make your own! Black t-shirts are about $3.99 and $.099 for white fabric paint, and a little more for iron-on transfers, at Michael’s … if you’re not crafty, consider wearing black & white to show IATX solidarity. But remember, what you wear isn’t important — BEING THERE is!

WHAT TO BRING:

  • Noisemakers  such musical instruments, percussion instruments (homemade is fine!), kazoos, whistles, bullhorns etc.
  • Signs
  • Fanny pack with water and other necessities
  • Copy of protest song lyrics, which you can find here

IATX and (hopefully) other Indivisible folks from around the state will meet briefly in front of the box office at the Long Center, right across the street from Auditorium Shores. We will meet-and-greet and learn a couple of protest songs, then head over to join the main group. We are here to support the cause, but it doesn’t hurt to raise visibility for our group, so let’s march as a group!

IS IT FAMILY FRIENDLY?’

Yes!

CAN I RSVP?

INDIVISIBLE ATX AT THE WOMEN’S MARCH

The Women’s March on ATX is a sister event of the Women’s March in Washington, DC and others across the nation. IndivisibleATX is participating in the march to show solidarity and support the mission.

MISSION: We stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families — recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country. WOMEN’S RIGHTS ARE HUMAN RIGHTS.

The march departs from the south gate of the capitol at 12PM. We will march down Congress Ave towards 6th Street, across 6th, and north on Lavaca back to the south lawn.
