Rally on Oct. 17 to Honor the Legacy and Work of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and to Get Out The Vote
On Saturday, Oct, 17, women’s groups across the country will march to send “an unmistakable message” opposing the Administration’s pre-election attempt to fill the seat of the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg (RBG), leading feminist activist and esteemed Supreme Court Justice.
In addition, we in Charlotte will be pouring our energy into getting out the vote at this RBG Rally and Voting March on Oct. 17 in Uptown Charlotte. We invite you to join us.
Here’s the drill:
- Celebrate the legacy of Justice Ginsburg by bringing homemade signs that convey why it’s important to vote this year. Wear judicial black, lace collars, pearls or whatever inspires you to vote!
- 9:30 a.m.: Meet at First Ward Park, 301 E 7th St., near the stone benches on the 7th Street side of park.
- 10 a.m.: Begin marching to the Early Voting polling site at Spectrum Arena, 333 E Trade Street.
- Face masks will be required, and social distancing observed. For those hesitant to be in public during the pandemic or those with ambulatory challenges, we invite you to join us in a car caravan. Come early and decorate your vehicle. Car caravan route starts at First Ward Park.
We encourage all to join us, even if you’ve already voted by absentee ballot, in supporting ALL voters and the legacy and work of Justice Ginsburg.
