The latest numbers coming in from the Boston Women’s March for America is that more than 60,000 marchers will be participating. That number could grow before Saturday. We will meet in the area on the Boston Common at the corner of Charles Street and Beacon Street.
MNA will have someone there with an MNA banner. The stage will be in this area and the march will start from this area. The plan is to have MNA members/staff, family and supporters march behind the MNA banner. There are well over 150 community groups marching with their banners too so knowing where the MNA banner is will help when the march begins.
The schedule so far: 11 a.m. - 12 p.m will be the rally with the speakers and guest speakers. Following the rally the marchers will assemble and begin walking approximately 1 mile in a loop from Beacon Street to Arlington and Commonwealth Ave back to the Boston Common, where the march will end.
Please dress appropriately for the weather/temperature (wear your MNA blue) and wear warm comfortable shoes. There will be portable bathrooms available near the rally site (no portable bathrooms on the march route). We are in the process now of making signs for the event which will be available at the march.
