The 2020 Women’s March in Florence

Florence is one of the many locations of the Women’s March, which will be held on the fourth anniversary of the first event.

United by concurrent Women’s Marches throughout the world and the common hash tag #WomenRising2020,  all are invited to gather in Florence’s Piazza San Lorenzo on January 18 from 2:30 – 5 pm to voice their respect for women who have a right to live a life free of violence.

Participants will unite to express solidarity and tolerance for cultural diversity, and call for peace, protection of the environment and politics of sustainable development. The event takes a stand against racial, sexual, LTGB and religious hatred as well as discrimination, anti-environmentalism and climate change denial, and calls for the rights of workers as well as immigrants.

There will be live music, inspirational speeches and materials to make personalized protest signs.
