Lei-Anna Bertelsen, March organizer co-author for our Bozeman for
CEDAW work to advance all Bozeman women human rights, with the multi-talented Becca Frucht as our emcee.
According to Women’s March organizer Lei-Anna Bertelsen, “we want to bring everybody to the table, particularly those who haven’t had a place at the table in the past. This means inclusivity. Inclusivity is really important when we talk about engaging in our democracy. So if we want voter engagement and participation, the more inclusive we are the better our democracy. And thirdly we need environmental and social justice. We are looking at the world today and how the youth are stepping into leadership roles because it is the world they will inherit.”
The march involves building a Movement lead by women of color with white allies, alongside organizations working toward social and racial justice, women’s human rights, Indigenous sovereignty, youth leadership, health care, peace and a sustainable environment.
