Allegany County – On Saturday October 8th, a Women’s Wave is coming to every state in this country. Locally, we are united in our commitment to freedom and dignity for all Americans and putting failed ‘leaders’ on notice – from Supreme Court Justices, to candidates running for office, to sitting electeds on both sides of the aisle – we will not stop marching, protesting, voting, running for office until ALL of our freedoms are protected.
Voters in Allegany County are demanding better. The freedom to decide how, when, and if we bear children. The freedom to raise children free from the terror of gun violence. The freedom to vote and participate fully and completely in a functioning democracy. The freedom to learn history and to express that history and complexity without book banning. The freedom to live in a country where we are invested in everyone’s prosperity.
Hundreds of thousands of people across the United States are expected to turn out at events planned in all 50 states, with major, anchor events planned in New York City, Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles and Washington, DC.
This peaceful event in Wellsville, NY will take place rain or shine. The public is invited to attend. Bring a sign or come early and make one on-site.
