The Real Estate Gals are committed to building community for ALL people. We believe in everyone’s right to home ownership regardless of race, sexuality, income, political beliefs, or background. We strive to find the best home possible for each and every one of our clients. Many of our clients are women, minorities, and/or members of the LGBTQ+ community.
We feel that the Women’s March on Washington is of special importance for our country, our city, and our real estate community.
We’ll participate in Seattle’s own local march at 10 a.m. on Jan. 21. We invite you to join us.
The Seattle Women’s March
It is one of 11 sister marches planned in Washington state and, with an estimated 30,000 participants, it is expected to be the third-largest in the country following similar marches in Washington, D.C., and Los Angeles.
The march will be silent for most of its 3.6 miles — organizers say the idea is to model similar practices from the civil-rights era, and that asking people to march without shouting or chanting will be a statement of unity and a rebuke of anger.
The rally is expected to end at about 11 a.m., with the trek beginning right afterward, lasting until about 4 p.m.
As a security precaution, the exact route won’t be released until shortly before the event.
from The Seattle Times
In solidarity with the march taking place in Washington, DC, we will march in Seattle. ALL women, femme, trans, gender non-conforming, and feminist people (including men and boys) are invited to march. We are showing our support for the community members who have been marginalized by the recent election.
Route details will be posted on the Seattle Womxn’s March website as soon as they are available. More information also available through The Seattle Times.
The National Women’s March on Washington
The rhetoric of the past election cycle has insulted, demonized, and threatened many of us – immigrants of all statuses, Muslims and those of diverse religious faiths, people who identify as LGBTQIA, Native people, Black and Brown people, people with disabilities, survivors of sexual assault – and our communities are hurting and scared. We are confronted with the question of how to move forward in the face of national and international concern and fear.
In the spirit of democracy and honoring the champions of human rights, dignity, and justice who have come before us, we join in diversity to show our presence in numbers too great to ignore. The Women’s March on Washington will send a bold message to our new government on their first day in office, and to the world that women’s rights are human rights. We stand together, recognizing that defending the most marginalized among us is defending all of us.
We support the advocacy and resistance movements that reflect our multiple and intersecting identities. We call on all defenders of human rights to join us. This march is the first step towards unifying our communities, grounded in new relationships, to create change from the grassroots level up. We will not rest until women have parity and equity at all levels of leadership in society. We work peacefully while recognizing there is no true peace without justice and equity for all.
