We The People Solidarity March to be held Saturday in Dunkirk

On Saturday, Sept. 21, a We the People Solidarity March will take place at 11 a.m. at Dunkirk City Hall. The march will go to the Dunkirk Pier. This peaceful assembly is one of numerous We The People Solidarity marches being held in more than 60 cities.

More than 100,000 people are expected to attend the We The People March being held in Washington, D.C. on Saturday to demonstrate what organizers say is “the current status quo is a threat to our democracy and values.”

The national We the People March is a grassroots effort spearheaded by activist and author Amy Siskind, president of The New Agenda, and co-sponsored by concerned citizens and activists from across the U.S.

“So many of us worked for two years ahead of midterms, to take a majority and put a check in place and finally have accountability. That hasn’t happened. So many Americans are concerned with losing our democracy and values. We are marching to be seen and heard, and to remind our elected officials that they work for us!” said Siskind.

In addition to planning the D.C. event, local activists have organized solidarity marches across the nation — and the globe — with more marches being added weekly, To learn more about the solidarity marches, visit https://www.wethepeoplemarch2019.org.

The march is designed to highlight issues that many Americans are deeply concerned about such as gun control, kids in cages, the environment, corruption, kleptocracy and more. The We the People March will be a day of equity and inclusion that reflects the group’s commitment to peaceful assembly to achieve its mission.
