Women's March Wisconsin joined women and allies from all regions of the country in Washington DC to make our voices heard in the Brett Kavanaugh nomination hearings. Our leaders now know that women are watching, and we will not be silent as our rights and freedoms are threatened by Trump's Supreme Court pick, Brett Kavanaugh. 

Over 200 activists were arrested while the Senate Judiciary hearings were taking place. Our efforts made headlines in CNNReuters, The New York TimesBuzzfeed News, HuffPostThe GuardianUSA Today, and The Nation among others. 

Kavanaugh’s nomination poses a threat to every area of our activism: healthcare, women’s reproductive freedom, voting rights, civil rights, gun violence, racial justice, disability rights, and immigrant rights. It is far too important for us to stay home, and that’s why we are headed back to Washington next week.

In the video below, Women’s March Wisconsin State Co-Chair, Sarah Pearson, and Southeastern Regional Co-Director Bianca Shaw, who engaged in civil disobedience for the first time last week, discuss why this action is so important.


With our partners, Center for Popular Democracy, Housing Works, and many more, Women’s March will convene in Washington DC on Thursday, September 20th and Monday, September 24th to demand our Senators vote NO on Kavanaugh’s nomination. For more information, please visit our website. If you are unable to attend, please consider donating to Women’s March to support this action.

Can we count you in?

This is a defining moment, and we must take action. Whether in Wisconsin or Washington DC, women will make it clear to our leaders that we expect them to protect our rights and freedoms or we will vote them out.
