Do I need to register for tickets for the events?
Yes. There are a limited number of seats available for the conference taking place on January 12, 2019, so we require that all attendees RSVP ahead of time. If you do not have tickets, you will not be permitted into the conference.
For the march taking place the following week, on January 19, 2019, we ask that attendees also RSVP, although we will not be checking for tickets for this event.
Why do I need to RSVP to the Women’s March?
RSVP’ing enables the organizers to more accurately estimate how many individuals will be attending and plan accordingly. This is essential to ensuring the safety and security of all attendees.
Are tickets free?
Yes; however, as there are a number of expenses related to hosting these events, we would greatly appreciate any contributions you can make. To contribute to the Women’s Empowerment Conference and March, please visit our GoFundMe page.
Are the conference and march happening on the same day?
No. The Women’s Empowerment Conference will take place on Saturday, January 12, 2019, at Empire State Plaza. The Women’s March will take place the following week on Saturday, January 19, 2019. We will be marching from West Capitol Park.
