Women's March on Washington and
Women's March on Montpelier Updates
The PJC's buses to the Women's March on Washington are almost full . There are eight seats left!         

We are printing this 6"x6" image on squares of cloth that you can pin it to your jacket, hat, backpack, etc. This patch will let folks in DC know that Vermont has shown up and it will help you all find one another!

More than 12 buses full of Vermonters are going. We hope to get patches and safety pins to all the buses and could use your help. If you are going on a bus other than a PJC-sponsored bus, please contact Wendy so we can get you patches for your bus.

We have received interest in making a "VERMONT" banner. If you are interested in making sure that that happens, please contact Rachel to coordinate that.

The March on Montpelier, our local solidarity event, begins at 1:00 p.m. at Montpelier High School and leads to the rally on the Statehouse lawn from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. The details for the March on Montpelier and the Unity Rally will be announced this week. Email Rachel for more information or check the facebook event for details as they unfold.
