Reno’s second women’s march begins tomorrow at 11 a.m. Organizers are asking attendees to meet at the Bruce R. Thompson Federal Building, 400 S. Virginia Street, where the march will begin with an indigenous prayer song, dancers, and drummers.

The march will then go to City Plaza by the BELIEVE sculpture.

Speakers / performers include:

  • Megan Lynne Lewis and Rosie Gully
  • Wheatstone, a folk songwriting band
  • Assemblywoman Amber Joiner
  • Activist Diana Loring with Action Together Nevada
  • Assemblywoman Theresa Benitez Thompson
  • U.S. Congresswoman Jacky Rosen
  • Clark County Commissioner Chris Giunchigliani

  • State Senator Pat Spearman, delivering the keynote

“Over thirty organizations have participated in creating all aspects of this event,” said Amber Black, march leader. “We hope that our elected leaders in Washington, the current Administration, and women around the world will realize that American women and the men who support them, will continue to fight for justice, inclusion, and rights that nature and the times demand. We will not relent.”
