Women & Allies Protest-Portland Among Cities Nationwide

Women & Allies Protest

Female identifying and supporting persons will protest and strike in solidarity with Women & Allies on December 12th, in cities across the United States, against the normalization of the misogyny, racism, bigotry, and hate promoted under the representation of Donald Trump. We will stand in support of the petition signed by more 4.8 million people, appealing to the members of the electoral college to declare Trump unfit for the presidency with a vote against him on December 19th and in favor of the majority winner of the presidential election, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Not Up For Grabs-Women Gather:Portland

  • 800 Southwest Market Street Portland, OR, 97201 United States (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

This Saturday, November 19th from 1-3 pm female identifying and supporting persons are will gather at 800 SW Market St. (PSU Park Blocks, on the streetcar stop) for a walk to Pioneer Square and back, to hold space and each other in peaceful protest against the misogyny, racism, bigotry, immorality, and abuse that have been granted permission under the leadership of Donald Trump.

The election of Donald Trump-including his own words and actions-are psychologically and physically damaging our country by enabling violence against historically marginalized groups of people. The Klu Klux Klan is publicly celebrating in Trump’s name, the Southern Poverty Law Center has registered over four hundred hate crimes in the week since election day, and known sexists and racists are being nominated for positions of great power in the government. Meanwhile, Mr. Trump (who is expected to lose the popular vote by more than two million by the time the votes are all counted) continues to tweet narcissistic, impulsive rants instead of making any effort to unite the country by insisting that people embody respect for the law and the dignity of human beings independent of origin, skin color, religion, gender, ability, sexual orientation, or political views.


We will not allow it to become normal.

We stand united in peaceful resistance.

We are not up for grabs.
