Participate in virtual march to honor Ruth Bader Ginsburg, women’s rights
The Office of Multicultural Programs and Retention would like to allow students, staff and faculty the ability to honor the passing of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, as well as celebrate the national Women’s March and women’s rights. To do so, the Multicultural Office is launching a virtual Salve Womxn March for the campus on Wednesday, Oct. 14.
On Saturday, Oct. 17, hundreds of thousands of people will march in the national Women’s March to protest the inauguration of Donald Trump and in honor of the feminist icon Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died on Sept. 18. The march focuses on the fight for reproductive rights, immigration reform, LGBTQ+ rights, racial equality, healthcare reform, and the environment, among countless other women’s and human rights issues.
In honor of the march happening nationwide, join the Office of Multicultural Programs and Retention on Wednesday, Oct. 14, for a virtual Salve Womxn March. On this day, faculty, students and staff will be marching virtually in support of the movement.
At any point during the day, participants can walk for 5 minutes, and then take a quick video saying that they walked 5 minutes. They can share the video on social media and tag the Multicultural Office’s Instagram with the hashtag #SalveWW. Participants are encouraged to challenge a friend to walk for 5 minutes, as well.
Help the Office of Multicultural Programs and Retention walk in support of womxn.
