Women's March Southcoast

Goal thermometer

There are fewer cities as storied and active as New Bedford when it comes to social and civil rights. During times of civil unrest- from the abolition era, to the Jim Crowe era, to the Trump era− we have been the epicenter of where prominent resistors have come to live and create a home base from which to fight. While well-known as the home of Frederick Douglass, William Bush, and Thomas H. Jones, we also had prominent women− sisters− who we know still march with us in spirit. Abolitionist Mary J. “Polly” Johnson, Activist Harriet Jacobs Writer, Architect, Educator, and Social Activist Elizabeth Carter Brooks, and Martha Bailey Briggs who prepared and trained school teachers.

The activism is in our blood, and when a major event threatens the work our predecessors fought so hard for, the blood boils. Our first

Women’s March (held in 2017 with just 3 organizers) was attended by hundreds of people. Women are known to fight, to resist, and you

can (strike the word call) feel our strength when you walk through our downtown which is adorned with statues and filled with historic buildings and cobblestone streets. Our past is always there to remind us that the future is worth marching for.

We ask for your support as Community Partners who have demonstrated a commitment to the activist spirit on the Southcoast.
