All metered parking in the downtown area is free on the weekend. You can also park in any of the garages for a cost. It is hard to anticipate how the parking will be downtown because this is a first time grass roots event! We encourage people to carpool because it saves our planet and provides a great opportunity to meet your fellow marchers! Alternatively, you can park outside of the downtown area and use Uber or Lyft to get you the rest of the way.
Types of signs: There are no restrictions on the type of signs you can bring to this march. Signs with sticks as handles are allowed.
All proceeds from books and extra donated money will go to the Women's and Children's Alliance
Official Statement from People for Unity:
Last year the Women’s March on Idaho brought thousands of Idahoans to the streets of Boise. This year, on January 21st 2018 on the Idaho State Capitol Building steps from 10:00 AM-1:00 PM, People for Unity will be celebrating the one year anniversary of the largest march in Idaho’s history. This event will recognize our success as a community over the past year but also emphasize that the fight is far from over, it’s a marathon not a sprint.
The event will take place outside the Capitol Building and speeches by the newly elected Boise City Council women, Lisa Sanchez, Capital High School activist Fanisee Bias, Mistie Tolman from Planned Parenthood, and Nicole LeFavour will be given. Following the speeches, we will chant and booths from AAUW, Planned Hey Parenthood, and many more will be present so the community can sign up to volunteer and get involved. This event will also be the release of an inspirational coffee table book of the comical and powerful signs and posters from last year’s march. All proceeds from this event will go to The Women’s and Children’s Alliance. Join the organizers of last year's march to continue our push for social justice.
