Tucson Solidarity Rally
Saturday
January 21st
Noon
Joel Valdez Main Library, 101 N. Stone Tucson

“Tucson Solidarity invites and welcomes our whole community to respond to the election of Trump in a way that acknowledges and celebrates our solidarity with each other.

The Tucson Solidarity Rally on Saturday January 21st will be an opportunity to demonstrate our common values and support for each other. Further, we must take strong and vigorous steps to protect those communities who may be attacked, Muslims, women, immigrants.

Coming together shows to the wider community that we stand united and strong. We invite various organizations and community groups to step forward and take action. The Women’s March on Washington–Tucson has shown the way.

We invite others to develop similar actions to bring their community to the central Tucson Solidarity Rally, environment, labor, immigrants rights, LGBTQ, teachers, seniors, $15 hour movement, and students.

We need you:

We are working to create a number of marches from a number of communities to meet at a central rally point to express and celebrate solidarity.

Share our page.

We ask your support in reaching out to communities and organizations. We also have a number of active work groups: outreach, logistics, media, signs, fundraising, rapid response network, safety, and ongoing efforts (petitions, electoral work, etc.).

Help us, email contact: solidarity2017tucson@gmail.com

The Women’s March on Washington–Tucson has organized and mobilized for a march from Armory Park to the library. See: https://www.facebook.com/events/1735764840079360/ We want other communities to mobilize within their communities and meet at the rally.

Please share.”

One response to “Tucson Solidarity Rally

  1. Carolyn Classen

    About 15,000 people marched from Armory Park to this rally, but we didn’t hear many of the speeches, being on Stone Ave/Pennington Ave, watching the Women Marchers to arrive. It took about one hour, 15 minutes for the thousands to reach Jacome Plaza. Food trucks were there to offer lunch and desserts. We did finally hear Ward 1 Councilwoman Regina Romero speak towards the end. Then we joined others in the Main library, prior to ASU History Prof. Thomas Davis’ talk on Race & Law in the U.S. (2 p.m.) sponsored by Arizona Humanities.
