March to Washington D.C.
July 8 – July 23, 2016
From July 8-23, 2016, Natalie White For Equal Rights will be leading a march from New York City to Washington, D.C. in protest of the lack of ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment.
Help us cover the expenses for the March to Washington D.C. Independently, we have raised $20,000 towards the total budget of $45,000. Now we are asking you, our friends, to help us close the gap and make this march possible and an unforgettable milestone for women in the United States!
Feminists of all genders, age, religion and race are invited to participate for whatever stretch of time they are able. There will be two stops a day in various cities and towns along the way. The concluding stop of each day of the March For ERA will feature festive speeches, a concert and collaborative art installations. Participants will stay and rest at community centers, rock & roll tour buses and campgrounds. Once the March reaches D.C., there will be a final protest asking Congress to pass the ERA and send it to the states for ratification.
Natalie White for Equal Rights, an interactive multimedia solo exhibition by Natalie White. Dedicated to raising awareness for the ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), the show promotes the need for inclusion. “Everybody wins if the ERA is passed,” says White. The exhibition serves as a launching platform for a two week march from New York City to Washington, D.C., to raise awareness of the Equal Rights Amendment with the mission of educating people about the issue along the way.
