Organizers announce this weekend’s 2020 Womxn’s March on Seattle postponed

The cold snap across Seattle means the 2020 Womxn’s March will be rescheduled.

With the march originally planned for this Saturday in Cal Anderson, organizers announced the change Monday morning:

Conversations of the approaching winter storm were a concerning topic in the City of Seattle Special Events Committee last week. Harsh winter conditions would make this outdoor event unsafe and inaccessible. Permit and resources for the event would be rescinded by the city, affecting emergency medical treatment, street closures, ADA accessibility, parks support, and barricades. The safety of our communities is the foremost priority for Seattle Womxn Marching Forward; leading by the wisdom of elders in Seattle’s First Nations community, “We must keep our womxn safe.”

The new date in March is also International Womxn’s Day.

In 2019, thousands again rallied at Cal Anderson Park before marching off the Hill in support of women’s rights in Seattle and as part of the national Women’s March movement.
