A March is a public gathering to bring attention to a specific issue or issues. The main purpose of a march is public awareness, which can be connected to specific actions such as policy change. A March starting point and end point usually have significance and direct relation to the issues being addressed, such as government buildings, embassies, corporate headquarters, etc. Most Marches either begin, end, or are bookended by a rally with live speakers.
An Action is a direct and physical activity to promote and catalyze specific changes in your community and governance. Actions can be organized through your Huddle, School, Chapter or Community. Here are some examples of Actions: Sit-in, Strike, Walkout, Rally, Community Service, Meeting with members of your government, Workshops, Booth
A Salon is an intimate gathering, a “convening” with 100 or fewer people that should occur frequently, monthly or quarterly and include one or more live speakers.
The purpose of a Women's March Salon is to foster an understanding of Women's March, highlight local issues, challenges and stories in your city or region and keep the community connected between the less frequent larger local events and annual Women's March.
Women's March Salons should strive to discover and present great local speakers in the community to speak on and highlight key issues affecting your community. You may live stream your Salon and encourage other chapters to watch the live stream or coordinate organizing Salons around similar topics.
A vigil is an informal gathering or meetup in respect of a specific issue, cause or tragedy. A Vigil is usually held in the evening at a public space and are often held at a location relevant to the specifics of the Vigil.
A Huddle is a gathering of a small group of friends, family, neighbors and fellow organizers, providing a guide and a space to meet. Your role as a Chapter leader and/or huddle host is a critical part of how we keep the Women's March spirit alive, build the movement beyond those who marched, and set a concrete plan of action. Here are some suggested themes and principles for your Huddle [link or show Tags].
A Women’s March Conference is a large, potentially multi-day ticketed event focused on a number of issues of interest to the local community.
