Historic Women's March being held in Las Vegas next month

Women's March

Women’s March will gather in Las Vegas for Women's March: Power to the Polls, an event that will launch a national voter registration tour one year after the historic Women’s March on Washington.

It's happening on Jan. 21, 2018.

This next stage of the movement will channel the energy and activism of the Women's March into tangible strategies and concrete wins in 2018.

The national voter registration tour will target swing states to register new voters, engage impacted communities, harness our collective energy to advocate for policies and candidates that reflect our values, and collaborate with our partners to elect more women and progressives candidates to office. The coordinated campaign will build upon Women’s March’s ongoing work uplifting the voices and campaigns of the nation’s most marginalized communities to create transformative social and political change.

On the heels of the Women’s Convention, which brought over 5,000 activists and future leaders to Detroit, and with November’s sweeping victories--from the first openly transgender woman of color winning an election to public office, to the first Asian American woman elected to the Virginia House of Delegates, to first Sikh American to be elected mayor of the city, to the first-ever Latina women elected to the Virginia House of Delegates, to seven cities electing their first Black mayors, and so many more--Women’s March aims to convert the groundswell of momentum and activism into direct electoral power.

“Women's March has created a powerful movement that has ignited thousands of activists and new leaders,” said Tamika D. Mallory, co-president of Women’s March. “ In 2018, we must turn our work into action ahead of the midterms. This new initiative will address voter registration and voter suppression head on. We marched for justice in DC, we created our plan in Detroit and now we’re bringing the power of the polls to Nevada.”

Nevada was rocked by the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, recent sexual assault allegations against elected officials, and has become a battleground state that will shape the Senate in 2018.

The kick-off event in Las Vegas will bring together talent, musicians, grassroots activists, and elected officials to a key swing state for a large-scale gathering to celebrate the work of the past year and launch a collective 2018 Women’s March agenda.
