If you’re heading to Seneca Falls on Saturday, you could see some delays and detours due to the “Women March in Seneca Falls.”
Thousands of women from across the State will gather in solidarity on Friday, January 20th, 10am, at the Women’s Rights National Historical Park in Seneca Falls, the birthplace of women’s rights in America.
The 2018 march and rally is called “per-Sisters for Women’s Equality,” and speakers will focus on: ending systemic racism & sexism; environmental justice; equal pay; eradicating violence against women; gender parity in elected office; LGBTQIA, immigrant, and disability rights; passage of the proposed ERA; and, reproductive rights/self-sovereignty.
According to police, the marchers will leave the park on Fall Street at 11:10 a.m., then turn north onto State Street, east onto South Park Street, south onto Cayuga Street, and finally turn west back down Fall Street and down Water Street. It will wrap-up at the Seneca Falls Community Center. In all, the ceremony itself is expected to go from 10 a.m. to about 2 p.m.
Police say if you are hitting the road at that time, you may experience some delays and possibly detours.
