"Let's make history together this Saturday!" enthuses State Assembly Member Rebecca Seawright. For her, yesterday's passage of the Reproductive Health Act and the Comprehensive Contraceptive Coverage Act, both of which she cosponsored add extra punch to the march to support human rights.

Assembly Member Seawright emphasizes that the Women's March on New York City promotes "civil rights for every human regardless of gender, race, sexual orientation, ethnicity, disability, religion or creed." It coincides with national march on Washington.

Both events take place on January 21st, conspicuously the day after the presidential inauguration.

Although the Women's March is in support of human rights, it is likely to be viewed as a protest too as it begins at 10:00 a.m. in Dag Hammarskjold Plaza at 48th Street and 2nd Avenue and heads south before making a turn west at 42nd Street. March leaders will make another right turn at 5th Avenue and wind up guess where...? In front of Trump Tower.

Attendance at the rally is estimated to be about 75,000. The organizers' Facebook Page has already registered 50,000 alone.

This is likely to be a landmark event for human rights and for the future politics of the nation. 

AM Seawright's office is ready to help:

Please call the community office at 212.288.4607 or email Seawrightr@nyassembly.gov for details and to RSVP

Here's hoping to see you on Saturday.
