Who We Are

We are Heather Toth, Kenzie Rodriguez & Wendy DiLivio. We are co-organizers for Colorado-Women’s March on Washington and we are raising funds to ensure that all Colorado women and champions of human rights can get to Washington, D.C. despite financial restrictions.

This is important to us. Every woman's voice should be heard, not just the one's who can afford to speak up. The Women's March on Washington takes place on January 21st, 2017. Airfare and lodging rates are exorbitantly high due to inauguration weekend and many women are priced out from participating in this march and movement. We want to change this.

Sponsorship Levels

We have a lofty goal and any amount helps. We want to get 150 Colorado women to get to Women's March in Washington, despite financial restrictions. With your collective gifts, we can achieve this goal. Here are ways your gifts will help:

$25 - The cost of flyers to help spread the word all across Colorado.

$50- The cost of a chartered bus ticket.

$100-The cost of two chartered bus tickets.

$500- The cost to sponsor one woman's travel expenses.

About the March

This march is a grassroots movement that began as a simple idea: what if one million women showed up in Washington D.C. on inauguration weekend and peaceably demonstrated their beliefs in human rights and equity for all? Less than two days following the birth of this idea, the New York Times published a story. It was pointed out to the national level organizers, almost immediately, that the name “Million Women March” belonged to Women of Color and to keep the name would be co-opting and appropriating black history. The organizers agreed, and changed the name to Women's March on Washington. The press just kept coming. CNN, The Washington Post, and The Huffington Post all published articles about the upcoming march.

Since the inception of this idea, national co-chairs Bob Bland, Tamika Mallory, Carmen Perez and Linda Sarsour, along with the state level organizers, have been working hard to make Women's March on Washington a reality. The Women's March on Washington will be held on Saturday, January 21st, 2016 beginning at 10:00 am. Specific location and details soon forthcoming. Professional organizers are working with all relevant agencies and there will not be any issues with securing necessary permits.

Principles of the March

Women's March on Washington follows the principles of Kingian non-violence and the Colorado chapter of Women's March on Washington follows these same principles.

Mission of the March

On January 21, 2017 we will unite in Washington, DC for the Women’s March on Washington. We stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families -- recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.

The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us-- immigrants of all statuses, Muslims and those of diverse religious faiths, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Native people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, survivors of sexual assault—that our communities are hurting and scared. We are confronted with the question of how to move forward in the face of national and international concern and fear.

In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore. The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message to our new administration on their first day in office, and to the world that women's rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.

We support the advocacy and resistance movements that reflect our multiple and intersecting identities. We call on all defenders of human rights to join us. This march is the first step towards unifying our communities, grounded in new relationships, to create change from the grassroots level up. We will not rest until women have parity and equity at all levels of leadership in society. We work peacefully while recognizing there is no true peace without justice and equity for all. HEAR OUR VOICE.


Thank You,

Heather, Kenzie, & Wendy
