2018 Houston Women's March

Our Unitarian Universalist principles call for us to actively resist injustice and work to promote the worth and dignity of every person. This month, people across our nation will be gathering to make a powerful statement about women’s equality and the need for active engagement in the democratic process. Plan now to join BAUUC members as we come together with other Unitarian Universalists from all over our city to participate together in the 2018 Houston Women’s March on Saturday January 20. This event will be taking place in conjunction with the National Women’s March the same day in Las Vegas.  The March theme is “Power to the Polls” with the goal of mobilizing women and allies in Houston and all over the State of Texas to wise up, rise up, engage, and VOTE. The March here in Houston will begin at 10:00am at the Water Works in Buffalo Bayou Park (105 Sabine Street) and will end with a huge rally at City Hall. We will meet in the BAUUC parking lot at 8:15am to carpool together to the March. Signs are encouraged but cannot contain sticks/poles. Bring comfortable shoes and water and be sure to wear your gold UU t-shirt!
