ACDC Joins the Women’s March on Washington 2018

Arlington, VA – January 8, 2018 — The Arlington County Democratic Committee (Arlington Democrats) is pleased to announce it is planning to March to commemorate the anniversary of the Women’s March and in support of Democratic values.

One year ago, the Arlington Democrats organized a group to attend the Women’s March.  In marching, the group found inspiration and energy to fuel the resistance.  Over the course of the last year, Democrats in Arlington and nationwide have harnessed that energy into electoral victories.  This anniversary March, as part of the #WeekendofAction2018, serves as a celebration for what we have accomplished in the past year, a reminder that the resistance is strong and growing stronger, and a call to action for the coming year.  We are Marching on the Polls this year!

Arlington Democrats are committed to unity and diversity, among our many Democratic values.  As such, the Arlington Democrats’ theme for this activity is “One of Many for a Commonsense Commonwealth.”

The following events are being planned by the Arlington Democrats, in cooperation with several progressive grassroots organizations:
