The time has come once again to take to the streets and stand up for our rights! Our theme this year is "Speaking Truth to Power." In a world that is always seemingly devolving into chaos and tyranny, it is the responsibility of every citizen to demand transparency and accountability from those in power. We must remind our leaders that their power comes from the people, and when lies become a chip in their political game, we can take that power from them just as easily.
We are excited to announce that we have a FULL ROSTER OF SPEAKERS!
The march will be emceed by:
March On Maryland founder and director Eve Hurwitz; Connecting the Dots founder and community organizer Monica Lindsey; and MOM Assistant Director Emma Buchman.
Jen Deerinwater: Tsalagi, Bisexual, Two Spirit, multiply-Disabled journalist, speaker, and organizer.
Deauntte Dezurn: Local community activist.
William Rowel: Senior Adviser/Community Relations Specialist to the Mayor of Annapolis
Mary Matiella: former Assistant Secretary of the Army in the Obama Administration.
Emma Seiss: Fridays For Future Annapolis co-founder and youth climate activist.
Drake Smith: President of the Anne Arundel County NAACP Youth & College Division Unit
Andrea Williams-Muhammad: Co-Chair for the Reproductive Health Equity Alliance of Maryland and a National Collaborator on the Policy Working Group for the ‘Black Mamas Matter Alliance’.
There will also be a written message from British-Iranian poet and activist Sheyda Monshizadeh-Azar.
